Two 8A+ by Marine Thevenet in Rocklands

11 August 2022

Marine Thevent reports on Instagram that she has done Microcline (8A+) and Colorado Corridor in Rocklands. In total, the full time lawyer has now done some 75 boulders 8A to 8B. (c) Clement Lechaptois

"For Microcline, I did the stand (7c+) in the first session and I was thinking to return to do Isabell's low start but Clement told me that Dai opened the sit (I didn’t know that the sit start even exists but it was obvious since you have perfect two holds to start!) So I sent it in the 2nd session at the boulder :) For Coco: It fits my style really well! A small compression with a heel hook. It took me one session!

How was Rocklands this year?
So it was my 5th Time in Rocklands and I had no « big expectations» since I had a finger injury from March to June. My only goal was to climb without any pain at all! This year the energy in Rocklands was really cool! I met some really nice and psyched people and it was really nice to see some climbers again in this paradise!
