Mina Leslie-Wujastyk in Summer Sizzle Shocker:

Sheffield based boulderer Mina Leslie-Wujastyk has climbed Atomic Playboy (Font 7C+/8A) in Fontainebleau, France.

The problem is at Buthiers Piscine and is a traverse with various starting points. Mina climbed the common shorter variation starting on the obvious jug in the centre of the wall (the full length traverse is Font 8A+/B).

The slopey traverse was climbed in mid-summer heat, Mina commented: "I'm coming home tomorrow, it's so hot here, hit around 35 deg today!"

There is debate as to the difficulty hence the split: 7C+/8A.

Commenting on the grade, Mina said: "I don't know my arse from my elbow when things feel that hard!"
