Sean McColl has made the 2nd flash ascent of Elephunk, ~8B, at Fontainebleau. Jimmy Webb flashed it last year.

For Sean it was the second 8B flash after Nagual at Hueco Tanks three years ago.

He is climbing well now, aided by excellent conditions, and has also made a quick repeat of The Traphouse, ~8B+.

Sean McColl is sponsored by: ACC, HRT, Joe Rockheads, La Sportiva, Mammut and Walltopia

Pedant's corner: The picture in the article is not of the traphouse as captioned (that is on the Fatman boulder), the problem maybe super tanker?
