The boys involved in the "Welcome to the hood" movie project, i.e Paul Robinson, Andy Gullsten, Daniel Woods and Guntram Jörg, have relocated to Fontainebleau, France.
Well, Daniel actually had to go to Mexico for a meeting with The North face, but the rest are there.
Initially, the weather was bad, but after a few days, they got a day with perfect conditions.
Andy, Paul and GU made quick work of the stand start Gourmandise Raccourci, 8A+, at Cuvier rempart. Paul and Gu also managed to do the assis version which weighs in around 8B.
According to 27crags:
"Paul had been looking at putting up a direct finish to Gourmandise by climbing into the top of Le Dernier Fleau. Yesterday, he completed Gourmandise Raccourci into the top of Le Dernier Fleau and he will attempt the entire direct line soon!"
So, what's next?
GU says the plan is to go try The (Big) Island, 8B+(8C), and maybe start working the sit down project, which will add an athletic 8B into the start of The Big Island, 8C.
