The Island (8C) Repeated in Fontainebleau

Vincent Pochon has repeated The Island, (Font 8C) in Fontainebleau.

The problem was first climbed by Dave Graham.

Pochon started lower than Graham, adding two extra moves. He also suggested a sit-start is possible and would add a Font 8B on to the base of this problem increasing the overall difficulty by a huge amount.

Awesome Effort! Such a beautiful line. Well done to him. James How many ascents is that now? Also are there any harder short problems in Font? James

Where did he suggest that grade or the existence of it as a project? Isn't that just speculation from someone who wasn't even there?
