Paul Robinson felt a little bit better today and, much to his own surprise, managed to repeat Antoine Vandeputte's Super tanker, 8B+, at Cuvier-Rempart, Fontainebleau.
The problem starts left of Big golden, traverses underneath it and then exits in Atresie, a tough 8A.
Paul says it took him three days to do Atresie last year and then three more now to do Super tanker.
It has such rad moves! Climbing into the begining of Atresie I figured out this crazy toe hook sequence where I do a drop knee toe hook and come into the hold I am toe hooking on with my hand!
He also says he was feeling a little bit better today, but that he is looking forward to going home to get some answers concerning what he has been suffering from for the last month and a half.
