Girard's Font trip with 7 boulders 8A to 8B+

Wednesday, 18 November

"I planned to stay one week in Font during the autumn holiday but with the lockdown I could stay one week more.

The second week was a success with 2 8B+ (Mécanique Elémentaire and Gecko sit). I did the first one in one session and the second one in 5 tries, one year after the stand start.
