As already reported, Jan Hojer recently repeated Vincent Pochon's The Big Island, ~8C, at Coquibus Rumont, Fontainebleau.
Guillaume Glairon-Mondet, who did the same problem earlier this year witnessed the ascent:
I'm psyched for training indoors, because last Saturday, I saw Jan Hojer climbing (walking) The Big Island, and he is soooo strong!!
Cutting loose and swinging around like Jan does on his almost send takes incredible strength. Watch the video!
