Sean McColl a native of Vancouver, Canada, who's now residing on our side of the Atlantic (Toulouse to be more precise) just came back from a short trip to Fontainebleau.
Though the weather was pretty far from ideal and Sean only got to do some actual climbing on the last day of the trip. That day on the other hand, turned out quite successfully.
At Cuvier Rempart, Sean did a couple of the "Big four", Fourmis rouges and Big boss, as well as the classic Noir désir.
What's even more impressive however, was his one day ascent of the area test piece, Khéops assis, 8B+.
If we are to believe Sean's blog, and I can think of no reason not to, this was his first one day ascent of an 8B+.
