5/6 sessions. Watch the ascent on "Out of Sight III".


Charles Albert reports on Facebook about his ascent of L'Alchemiste (original version).
Hey today i did the alchemist, the direct way. In this video you see Nalle trying two methods. The direct way is the one that goes to the left. It's a nice 8b+, I'll repeat it at least ten times and probably one for a video, eventually with a sit start.


l'Alchimiste original, by Charles Albert
Charles suggests this version is around 8B+ in difficulty. This is a bit strange as the right, slightly easier, exit is currently considered ~8C.
