Had a nerve-wrecking climbing day and managed to open three new 10-meter highballs! This stunning line up the middle of the overhang is harder in the bottom but very committing and sustained in the upper part. I decided to name it Book of Bad Ideas. Classic line. Afterwards doing two more equally tall first ascents up to 8A+ might have been pushing it for one day, but sometimes you just gotta go for it! #bouldering #climbing #island

New projects!! The overhang on the left is around 10 meters tall and has a hard looking line going straight up the middle! Time to get scared! #gobigorgohome #bouldering #climbing

A nice ending to the day after a solid mission of scoping out projects, brushing up some new ones and getting to the top of a few! Stoked to be back in Finland for a bit! #island

Resting in Fontainebleau is so damn hard! Another rest day that turned into climbing Opération Plats du Désert (8A) and flashing Vague Patatras (8A). Photo: Neil Hart #bouldering #island

Love hiking to the boulders every day here in Fontainebleau! #nature (at Forêt de Fontainbleau)

This hold makes it possible! l’Alchemiste, unrepeated since it’s first ascent in 1997. Possibly the hardest boulder in Fontainebleau at the time, two of the crux holds were broken off with a hammer only days after the first ascent. After all the controversy that followed, it remains a mythical project to this day to re-open this line.
Yesterday I managed to find a sequence and did every move, so there is no more speculating whether it’s possible or not. Now I’m hoping to get some colder days to get back on it! #bouldering #climbing #island (at Fontainebleau)

Managed to get the 2nd ascent of La Toupie Carnivore (8C) yesterday! Still took me a full session of jumping until everything clicked on the crazy crux dyno! Big props to Guillaume for opening such an incredible boulder! As for the grade, a stout Font 8B+ may be more accurate but even at that grade, it has one of the hardest dead-points in the world!

Earlier this week we wrapped up a shoot with Stefan Schlumpf Photography and Diego Defilla. Expect some cool footage coming out soon! #bouldering #climbing #island
