After his second place at the Bloc Shop Open in Montreal, Alex headed to Rumney. I don't think he's been back since his classic 2013 US trip, where he climbed 135 8a/8A's or above in 121 days including Dave Graham's boulder/route The Fly, 9a, at the very same spot.
Regarding his repeat of Jaws II, he comments on Instagram.
That went a bit faster than expected! I checked it out twice and didn't really find any beta that seemed to work although I tried about 5 different possibilities. And next go I just did it with one of the betas?!
Surprised but also happy about it!
The following day he did both Livin' Astro and Livin Astro glide, the latter of which I think is supposed to be slightly harder.
