The first ascent of Le Pied à Coulisse, a direct exit to the classic Chaos at Rocher Gréau, was made by Guillaume Glairon-Mondet 15 January, so exactly one month before the first repeats. Guillaume worked the problem on and off for three seasons and said the ~8C+ grade was very much a suggestion, but that it was of course based on his experience from both Fontainebleau and other areas.
Jimmy says that he wanted to repeat what Gui gui said could be 8C+. So I did . Though maybe the most logical method would be Charle's way. But if you want to repeat that you have to take at least one shoe off.
I take it you don't agree with the 8C+?
No. But I do think what he did was one of the hardest lines in the forest. 8C I would say.
Charles climbed a more direct version which he says is easier than the original method, but maybe only possible without climbing shoes [he did it barefoot].
