Vecchio Leone 8B flash by Killian Chabrier

25 November 2022

Killian Chabrier has flashed Vecchio Leone in Brione. In 2021 he did his first three 8C's but this year he has previously been focused more on routes having done his first 9a.

Can you tell us some more about the flash and the beta you used?
A friend of mine who was in Brione 2 weeks ago told me I should try to flash Vecchio Leone cause it suits my style a lot. So I decided to take a look! I check some betas my friends used and decided to go for a proper flash but with the idea of climbing with the feeling and reorganizing if it’s necessary. I look at videos before and a guy who was in the same area told me where to top out because I didn’t look where it tops out 😅 That’s what I did with using a beta more powerful in the middle by crossing with a left foot instead of a right one, it feels a bit harder but less random. I think Vecchio Leone suits my style very well cause it’s my first 8B flash and I felt that I couldn’t fall in it!
