Afterwards: Walking a cliff edge path between boulders a hold broke and pitched him 20 feet off a cliff. Luckily his years of bouldering experience saved him from major damage. He's incredibly lucky to get away with some nasty cuts.//Eddie Fowke
This resulted in six stiches, but luckily he seems to be ok.
Bear toss is on the same boulder as Daniel Woods' unrepeated Hypnotized minds, ~8C+, so who knows, maybe Chon can bounce back and make the first repeat. Unless Rustam Gelmanov beats him to it that is.
The young Korean is no stranger to hard outdoor bouldering. In March, he repeated Asagimadara, ~8C in six goes and Mineruba, ~8B+, in two, both at Mizugaki, Japan.
Meanwhile Daniel's project is to link Bear Toss into Hypnotized minds and create Hypnotized bears(?), ~9A.
