Kevin Lopata has repeated Jan Hojer's Jour de chasse​, ~8C, at Recloses, Fontainebleau. This was the 7th ascent after Jan Hojer, Guillaume Glairon-Mondet, Iker Arroitajauregi, Jimmy Webb, Niky Ceria and Ned Feehally.

Kevin says this problem is much harder than Mécanique Élémentaire, ~8B+, the other testpiece on the same boulder, which he repeated not so long ago.

The crux is to go up with the famous undercling of Narcotic to the slopers at the lip at the boulder. You need a very strong body tension for holding the final jug. Wonderful and so physical
