Hypothèse assis 8C+ FA by Charles Albert barefoot

Charles Albert, the famous Font barefoot boulderer, has made the FA of yet another 8C+, Hypothèse assis. It adds two moves to the 7C+ stand start. "It’s just another hard boulder, it’s not very beautiful and it’s chipped. I did it because it was dry. It took me three quick sessions and a long one. I don’t think it’s easier or harder with shoes the next project is another hard boulder.”

Charles climbs barefoot and he has established and repeated several 8C's and done the Fa of La Revolutionnaire 8C+. The pic by Neil Hart is from an 8B+ in Font.

Why is it disgusting? Sweat? Chalk? Hands? Is climbing barehand disgusting aswell? Climbing naked? Climbing soaked in soap and oil? What?

Saves money on climbing shoes.

Does Charles chalk his feet?

actually these 2 moves should be 8C at least, what would be really impressive!

@nschebbks87 - considering Shaun added 3-4 moves to the 8B+ Off The Wagon and it bumped to 8C+, those must be 2 really hard moves!
