After having trashed his skin thoroughly in the La Sportiva Legends Only in Stockholm, Jan Hojer has now recovered enough to be back in Fontainebleau.
Yesterday was my first climbing day. I finally did Super tanker, ~8B+, (first try that day).
Today I went back to Recloses and did Narcotic directe, ~8B, and the first ascent of Jour de chasse, same start as Mécanique elèmentaire [an 8C Jan repeated recently] but instead of climbing down into Opium, I chose the more direct and slightly harder top out of Narcotic. To me it feels like 8C although it might be on the lower end.
This was Jan's fourth ~8C in Fontainebleau:
- The Big Island
- Mécanique elementaire (hard 8B+ according to Jan
- Trip Hop
- Jour de chasse
