l'Alchimiste original, by Charles Albert

Everything seems to be happening in Fontainebleau at the moment and especially at Apremont. Today, Charles Albert made the 4th ascent of L'Alchimiste.

But that's not all. He did it by Marc LeMenestrel's original unrepeated left exit.

And that's still not all. He did it without shoes. Barefoot...

Charles suggests this version is around 8B+ in difficulty. This is a bit strange as the right, slightly easier, exit is currently considered ~8C. 

Perhaps he has caught the attention of a shoe brand? 

Here is a video with Charles.
