Nalle Hukkataival has made the second ascent of Guillaume Glairon Mondet's recently opened Toupie Carnivore assis, ~8C, at Rocher Saint-Germain, Fontainbleau.
Nalle repeated Gioia, ~8C+, just a few weeks ago and is obviously super strong right now (as always really).
We've had some warm days here in Font, but I managed to get the 2nd ascent of La Toupie Carnivore (8C) yesterday! Still took me a full session of jumping until everything clicked on the crazy crux dyno, but managed to do it in two days! Big props to Guillaume for opening such an incredible boulder! As for the grade, a stout Font 8B+ may be more accurate but even at that grade, it has one of the hardest dead-points in the world!
