Le Nevé and Buhl send Le Voyage 8b (+) trad

Melissa Le Nevé and Fabi Buhl have repeated James Pearson's Voyage at Annot calling the nearly 40m line 8b. Comparing it to Céüse grades, Melissa says on Instagram. "It felt a bit easier than some 8b's [out] there. And, if the crux problem was in Fontainebleau, it would be probably around 6c. It's possible the holds get better over time with this very smooth sandstone."

Le Nevé has been making headlines since 2011 when she did her first 8c+ and was #4 in the Boulder World Cup. Including an 8B+ boulder, an 8b+ MP and her ascent of Action Directe (9a).
