Fred Moix Pompon Léon 8B+ FA - Up-Climbing

Fred Moix Pompon Léon 8B+ FA

"Photographer Fred Moix recently succeeded to add the obvious logical start to Fred Nicole’s mega-classic Joyeux Léon at La Balmaz, Switzerland.
Joyeux Léon was established back in ’92, and was considered as the world’s hardest traverse at the time.
This traverse is now considered as a well-established 8B boulder/8B+ traverse and Pompon Léon, the new line, adds 11 moves, thus making the crux sequence much more spicy according to Fred Moix who propose it as an 8C in the old-school traverse grading or 8B+ as a boulder."
