Got the 3rd ascent of Force du Destin (8B+), one of the least repeated boulders in Fontainebleau! I'd been told I shouldn't even bother trying it because the crux is a massive morpho move to the lip, so I'm even more psyched to send it! Feels more like 8C for my height, and a very good one! Legendary boulder opened by local strongman Kevin Lopata!

Alban seems unstoppable at the moment. After the first ascent of La Force, ~8C/9a, and quick repeats of La force du destin, ~8B+, and Hip-hop assis, ~8B, he has now made the 3rd ascent of Marc LeMenestrel's l'Alchimiste, ~8C.
