Markus Jung climbs Misti, ~8CVideo

In late February, German climber Markus Jung went to Fontainebleau for a weekend. He used his time time well and managed to repeat both Misti, ~8C, at Rocher des Demoiselles and La directe du surplomb de la mée assis, ~8A+/B, at  Rocher du Potala.

As I understand it, Misti is somewhere between a boulder problem and a traverse, whatever that means. So, neither 8C boulder, nor 8C traverse, but still 8C somehow? 

Be that as it may, but Markus makes it look surprisingly easy.

It's a traverse with a top out at the end, simple. :-)

I'll eat my beret if that's 8C!
