Swoop!! Today I could send my hardest climb on the paper but mostly my hardest challenge in terms of reachy moves and mental side ! After falling a while on the very last move I finally could stand on the top of "Mécanique élémentaire" 8B+. Super happy!
It seems Melissa's leaving the competition scene and focusing on outdoor climbing is really beginning to pay off. By repeating Mecanique elementaire she became only the sixth* female climber to climb an ~8B+ or harder boulder problem.
