Foundations Edge 8C by Simone Tentori

7 September 2022

Simone Tentori has done Dave Graham's Foundations Edge (8C) in Fionnay. "I'm just so happy to have climbed one of my lifetime dream boulders. It's my second 8C boulder after the FA I put up in April 2021 in Val Masino, but I sent this one unexpectedly fast. It was my first visit ever to Fionnay a week ago and I was really lucky to have shared a session on the Foundation boulder with Clem Lachaptoise. He was very kind to show me the perfect beta and I was close to sending that day, but I felt tired and with bad skin so the next day I rested. The next day Simon Lorenzi showed up and sent really fast, but then he left because he had to drive to Magic Wood. I was left alone but after 1h of cooling down my skin and readjusting a bit the hand positions I had a really good try and I was on top."
