Creature from the Black Lagoon 8C+ by Shawn Raboutou


Monday, 1 October

Shawn Raboutou reports on Insta that he has done Creature from the Black Lagoon 8C+ in RMNP. (c) Daniel Woods, who made the FA in 2016. Shawn, who previously has done 8C's as well as a 9a+, is brother to the successful competition climber Brooke. Their parents Didier and Robin Erbesfield were both leading climbers during the 90'ies. "Well the process was pretty fun and what made the difference in the end was the conditions. It was my 4th day on it this year and I had tried it twice 2 years ago.

I don't feel that I have enough experience though to make better judgement then the people who have done it before me."
