Kairn reports Alban Besnier has beaten the humid conditions in Fontainebleau and made a very quick repeat of Antoine Vandeputte's Khéops assis, ~8B+.
After dispatching the stand start of the problem, an 8B in itself, needing for attempts that day, he only needed three more to do the sit 20 minutes later. The only other comparable repeat in terms of quickness, is Sean McColl's. Sean did both the stand and the sit within one hour almost exactly one year ago.
This was Alban's secdond of the grade after Le Clash at Riouperoux.
