Mysterio 8B by Caroline Sinno

Saturday, 13 June

Caroline Sinno, who has done four 8B Traverses in Fontainebleu, has done her second 8B boulder there, Mysterio. "Always in love with nature and beautiful boulders in the forest of Fontainebleau. With lots of passion and attachment to this proud line « Mysterio » I took advantage of the last « conditions » of the year and climbed it. It is a short and intense line graded 8B with only 4 hard movements opened by Olivier Lebreton. It goes crescendo with a tricky last dynamic movement. It is very remote in the forest and I really enjoyed the scenery there. I have done another movement from the initial version so makes it a harder version?"

How were you able to train during the lockdown and what are your summer plans?
Not a lot of training. I was a bit depressed at first. I train very little physically, instead lots of stretching and proprioception and also some elastic bands. Summer plans: climb in Font on some easier climbs and maybe a hard traverse until July and then in august Rodellar.

What is proprioception?
On a Swiss ball, eyes closed, repeating the movements in my mind. A bit like Adam Ondra and elastic bands for resistance.

Daniel said that it was extremely frustrating to hear the spectators …
