No Kpote Only 8C (+) by Illya Bakhmet-Smolenskyi (17)

3 May 2022

Illya Bakhmet-Smolenskyi, who previously has done four 9a's but just one 8B+ before arriving to Fontainebleau, has done No Kpote Only 8C (+). It was put up by Charles Albert, barefoot, as a 9A. Later it has been repeated twice and 8C+/9A as well as 8C/+ have been suggested.

"A great climb and a super productive day! Can't say anything about the grade cause never tried a proper 8C before, so I'll just wait till the grade settles))) I also had my own beta cause couldn't reach the gaston from the heel, so I went down to it with my hands and stood up from the undercling crimp next to it. Would be sick if someone strong could check it out and give it a grade) video coming soon!"
