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!
