Charles Albert climbing No kpote only at Fontainebleau

by

The video of Charles Albert making the first ascent of No kpote only at Fontainebleau in France. Freed by the French climber in January 2019, the boulder problem was repeated by Ryohei Kameyama who suggested 8C+/9A.

"Oui monsieur! Voila!" This apparently effortless send actually resulted in one of the hardest boulder problems in the world: No kpote only at Fontainebleau. Charles Albert clinched the deal in January 2019 in his usual style, ie barefoot and without a crashpad, and little matters that a few months later Japan’s Ryohei Kameyama suggested a downgrade from the full 9A to 8C+/9A.
