Webb and Albert strong in Font

Climb Le Pied à Coulisse opened by Mondet

18 February 2016

Another great performances by Webb and Mowgli Albert in Fontainebleau. First James climbed flash Ouroboros, an 8b graded personal 8a+, third boulder of this difficult done in this style. Then he did also the second ascent of La Pied à Coulisse, a line opened by Glairon-Mondet some weeks ago and downgraded by James to 8c. After some time, also Charles Albert did it but with a direct variation; for this reason the boulder is graded 8b by Mowgli. "First of all major props to Gui Gui for having the vision to create this line! Its a very nice problem hosting both technical and powerful movement. Regarding the grade I personally feel 8C is more appropriate though it is definitely one of the hardest in the forest. Today Charles and I climbed it using VERY different methods. Charles created a direct sequence that eliminates around 6 moves off Gui's line and honestly might only be doable if you're barefoot. For me I decided to repeat Gui's line because I wanted to climb what he thought could be that next level. Nonetheless I'm keen to have it done and really psyched to move forward on other projects! 2nd ascent. 3 days" source 8a.nu
