Jongwon Chon has made the first ascent of Eternal Sunshine, ~8C, in the Mudeungsan National Park, South Korea.

The 10m high problem is the first of the grade in South Korea, and, I think the second ~8C, for Jongwon Chon after Asagimadara at Mt. Mizugaki, which he repeated in March this year.

In less than three weeks, on 26 November, he competes in the La Sportiva Legends Only, and he seems to be in top form.

Jongwon Chon is sponsored by: adidas and La Sportiva
