A really impressive video of Frenchman Benjamin Bouissou putting up a hard trad route in Greenland in good style.

And what aspect of pre-placed gear along the whole thing is "good style", exactly??

Still, it gives someone the opportunity to do the first trad ascent of it.

So about every hard line that relays on pitons is still waiting for a proper trad first ascent (unless they are hand placed on lead... which by my recollection does not happen that often).

Pre-practised, pre-placed gear,extenders, and worse of all...gloves!
Its just like a red point of a sport route with the clips in and it just looks like The File, The File (VS 4c), so probably only VS.

How do you now that he hadn't placed all that gear on lead? Also the last piece could've even been his high point on an onsight.
Too many assuptions.

Hmmm,
Glad it wasn't just me thought that was a complete load of utter sh*te then.
