Fontainebleau local, Lucas Ménégatti has made what should be the 6th ascent of Dave Graham's The Island, ~8B+/C, at Coquibus Rumont, Fontainebleau.
Lucas recently spent a couple of weeks in Switzerland, together with Team America, and apparently this got him into shape.
Vincent Pochon has established The big island, ~8C, which adds two moves to the start. So far, it hasn't seen any repeats.
Here's an excerpt from Brian Solano's The Players DVD: Dave Graham making the FA.
