Chris Schulte has repeated Vincent Pochon's The Big Island, ~8C, at Coquibus Rumont, Fontainebleau, for his first ever of the grade.
After setting up nicely by doing things like The Dagger, ~8B+, some 8B's plus his first ever 8A+ flash (Conquistadors) in Ticino, Chris went to Fontainebleau. Here he dispatched Nalle Hukkataival's The Realist, ~8B+, and Elephunk, ~8B, before he got back on The Big Island, one of the problems on his "life list".
