VIDEO: The Big Island, ~8C, by Jonas Winter

German climber Jonas Winter has repeated Vincent Pochon's The Big Island, ~8C, at Coquibus Rumont, Fontainebleau.

It seems the friction has once again returned to Fontainebleau, where Jonas Winter has made a  very solid looking repeat of The Big Island, ~8C. As far as I know this was the first of the grade for him.

Whether any one, for example Jimmy Webb, manages to link the ~8B sit sequence into the ~8C start anytime soon still remains to be seen. Climbing T.B.I. when you're already pumped at the start can't be easy...
