Daniel Woods has had another good day in Fontainebleau, doing Gourmandise, 8B, as well as making the first repeat of Paul Robinson's The Traphouse (Gourmandise assis directe), 8B+, in the Fatman roof, Cuvier-Rempart.
On his 27crags ticklist, Daniel comments on Gourmandise: "Really nice roof climbing on underclings to a powerful dyno leading into a traverse finish... has perfect movement. Did 5 min. after traphouse... back in tha game!"
The following day, Daniel did Gecko assis, 8b+, while Paul Robinson did Chaos, 8B.
