Fanatic Climbing reports on Facebook about Kevin Lopata's ascents of Misti and Mécanique Élémentaire.
Kevin Lopata impérial à Bleau ! Le grimpeur lillois a profité de la collante du milieu de semaine pour venir plier son premier 8C avec la 5ème ascension de "Misti" au rocher des Demoiselles (après Arnaud Ceintre, Nalle Hukkataival, Jérémy Bonder et Ruben Diaz) ! Un peu plus au Sud, Kevin a aussi plié dernièrement "Mécanique élémentaire", 8B+ sur le bloc d'Opium à Recloses. Voici son ressenti sur les deux passages : "Misti est une très belle ligne, hyper esthétique, l'effort est très soutenu. Je suis particulièrement à l'aise dans ce style... Petites prises, rési et très technique en pieds et en placements, il a juste fallu que je m'affûte en gainage d'inversée, ce qui ne m'a pas fait de mal. Mécanique élémentaire, c'est tout le contraire, du gros gainage, des gros ballant, et en même temps un crochetage talon au départ bien compliqué à réaliser. J'aime aussi beaucoup ce style de grimpe, en tout cas je m'entraîne pour, et ça paye ! Ces 2 blocs m'auront confirmé une chose, pour réussir, il faut s'en donner les moyens !" Restez connectés la vidéo arrive ! Kevin Lopata imperial in Font ! The french climber from Lille has sent in the middle of the week his first 8C, "Misti", rocher des Demoiselles. It's the 5th ascent of this passage after Ceintre, Hukkataival, Bonder and Diaz. More in the South of the forest, Kevin has also climbed "Mécanique élémentaire" 8B+ in Recloses. Here is his comment about his 2 ascents : "Misti is very esthetic line, with a continuous effort and a style where I am quite comfortable... Small holds, technical feet moves, resistance,... He just requires me to improve a little bit in undercling power...Not too bad for me ! About Mécanique, it's the opposite ! Big body tension, no foot moves, and a weird heelhook at the beginning. I like this style and I'm training a lot for that and it pays ! This 2 problems show to me that for having the success you must stay focused and work hard !" Video coming soon !

Just landing this morning from Reunion Island at 05:00am. The Font weather seemed great to join the Ocún team on Mécanique élémentaire (8b+/V14) ! It was hard to wake up but so cool to manage this ascent ! #bouldering #bloc #escalade #climbing #fontainebleau #crevé

Swoop !! 😆😆 today I could send my hardest climb on the paper but mostly my hardest challenge in terms of reachy moves and mental side ! After falling a while on the very last move I finally could stand on the top of "mecanique elementaire" 8b+. Super happy 😋 thanks for the spot @nalle_hukkataival and nice send of "jour de chasse" on this warm day ! @fabi_buhl took the 📸 adidas TERREX • FiveTen •Petzl Arkose
