Five weeks or so from now, James Kassay, from Melbourne, Australia, will arrive in Europe for a 7 month stay. The plan is to do some of the bouldering world cups and also climb some blocks outside.
In the video below, James repeats a lot of classics in impressive style, including Esperanza, 8B+, (yes, there's a slight dab), Alma blanca, 8B, Diaphanous sea, 8A+ (comfortable flash) and many more.
About Esperanza he says he ...did Esperanza in about 5 shots and almost did Desperanza on my last day in Hueco (fell on the last move after a couple of shots...).
