Sunday, 10 May

Melissa Le Neve reports on Insta that she has done Christian Bindhammer's Bionic Commando 8c+ in Bavaria and it took some 7 sessions.

Melissa is one of the best multi-discipline climber having also done 8B+ boulder, 8b+ MP. The 30-year-old finished her competition career in 2016 being #3 in the Boulder World Cup.

With Matilda it works super well so far!"
