Hey, yesterday I did Délire Onirique, easy 8c for tall dudes. Gotta find new hard projects now.

As the name suggests, this is the sit start to Kevin Lopata's, Délire Onirique, ~8A+, and this makes Charles' remark "easy 8c for tall dudes" interesting as Kevin is exactly that. A tall dude.

This was Charles' second of the grade after La Révolutionnaire, which he put up last month.

Impressive. Between this guy and Dawes' no-handed climbing, we seem to have the climbing footwear spectrum covered.

Just when you think you've escaped 2016, bang, the insanity returns. Amazing considering the decades climbers have sought tighter shoes and this guy crimps with his big toe

I'd like to see him do it in B3's though - which is where the cutting edge is nowadays.
