German power house Jan Hojer has made the second ascent of Mecanique Elementaire, ~8C, at Recloses, Fontainebleau. The problem was put up in December 2005 by Sébastien Frigault.
Jan needed only two sessions, if you count the one he had when he did Opium, ~8A, in February last year, and felt it was probably more 8B+ than 8C for him.
I had a chat with him about it:
So Jan, you're at it again. Killing off 8C's that is.
Seems Fontainebleau suits you, even though it shouldn't.
Yeah... well, I guess Font is sort of known for being a lot about feet. All those technical French guys in Boreal Ninjas...
True! Guess it's all about power then after all...
This Mecanique Elementaire that you did... what's the style?
So the start is the crux for you?
Those are hard yeah... How long will you stay in Font?
Good luck with that! I imagine the crux is having power left when you get to the dyno move? There is such a move right?
If you've fallen there twice, your chance of doing it next time should be 150%, no problem!
Anyway, best of luck with that! Looking forward to seeing that power at Legends Only in a month!
