Caminati repeats The Island

Michele Caminati has repeated Dave Graham's The Island, 8C, at Coquibus Rumont, Fontainebleau. This was the 4th ascent of Dave's version, but Vincent Pochon has done a slightly harder version, adding two moves to the original start.


The grand price, the sit down start, is still there for the taking.

While I'm on the subject of The Island, Dave and the boys is now hard at work finishing the two(?) Island movies that should be out any time now: And I also want to mention that there is just a lot of magic happening here in the Island studio today, so much art, and stuff...These crazy films are looking pretty SWEET.

Hi Björn, According to your source (, this was the 3rd repetition of Dave's version, i.e., 4th ascent if you do not count in Vincent Pochon's ascent.

I stand corrected. Forgot about Sam's ascent. Thanks
