Video: Desgranges on King Lion

© Desgranges coll.

Romain Desgranges and Fred Rouhling just got back from the US, where they spent some time bouldering around the Horseshoe Canyon Ranch in the Ozark mountains, Arkansas.

Here's a video of Romain repeating King Lion an 8A+ highball first done by Chris Sharma. Chris original method (Dosage III?) was quite spectacular and involved an iron cross like position, but the beta has since been refined.

Nice. Almost an anti-climax to see it being climbed "properly" rather than by Sharma's crazy sequence.
