Crikey that was quick. But if it was going to be anyone it'd be Mr McClure

I think you may be confusing Le Voyage with James' new one Bon Voyage? James did Le Voyage in 2017 and it's had a fair few repeats now (7 by my count https://climbing-history.org/climb/840/le-voyage). Im sure Le Voyage ain't easy but it strikes me as Steve's kinda bag, so very cool but not as noteworthy as a repeat of Bon Voyage.

It sounds like Steve has had a look at Bon Voyage but doesn't sound like he's done it https://www.instagram.com/p/CqJgMw_DoqR/

Ahhhh right you are! My bad.

Steve says it's f'ing hard, no chance on bon voyage! But he's always so modest so I never know whether to believe him, it wouldn't surprise me if tmrw he says he's done it :lol:

“Flippin’ heck! That’s hard!” Shakes head in disbelief.

Actually, I’ve just made the same mistake as up thread. The post is not James’s new one - confused by the name.

McClure has had a look at Bon Voyage now

Seems to totally rate the difficulty and quality - describes it as probably E12 and the next level.

Vecchio Leone sit from Matt Fultz - think this is news, right? I've just seen the youtube, not sure if this is the announcement or just a video posted much later than the send.

8 sessions, pretty rapid!

Definitely news! Second accent, and 8C+ is still hard.

Pretty sure he must have done it recently, he's been posting weekly update videos about the trip and he'd not fine it in the first two.

His accent is very different from Aidan's for sure ;)

Went down fast, but not very surprising.

For anyone without insta, he looks like he's finally about to send Vecchio Leone sit, but suddenly drops off the last hard move, with a look of concern, exclaiming "my testicle went inside me!" :2thumbsup:

I was listening to the Jam Crack with Varian the other day, and he was talking about Aidan and how there isn't really anyone else operating at a similar level in his style; I.e. using small holds through body tension and strength rather than being built like a paper clip. Anyway, Matt Fultz I think is the exception. Built like a tank yet still really handy on a crimp. Pretty inspiring.

The breathy commentary from (presumably?) his girlfriend on his attempts... :whistle:

Hopefully the same can be said of his testicle

His wife, it's the same for most of his clips. Just don't mention it to Mr Fultz, he's already kicked off once on instagram about people saying things about it

(I was just about to link Brace for the cure, but Bradders beat me to it!)

For fucks sake, that has to be deliberate! 'smooth and strong baby'

Intrigued how anyone could possibly get annoyed over someone pointing out the extremely obvious!

"You can do it, trust yourself"!

That's interesting that he was upset about it being pointed out. As Jim said surely it's obvious? I think I'd find it really distracting!

It is hard to maintain compression when you're creasing with laughter after all.

Made my morning.

Not so much for me. I was watching at breakfast when my daughter came into the room. She is convinced I was watching pr0n.
