I don't doubt that he's done this. However, given that he's claiming an 8C+, presumably climbed by doing a massive move off precisely fuck all, why is nobody giving him shit for not producing a video?

Grimper is kind-of giving him a slight censure

Comme à son habitude, Charles a probablement une vidéo de l'ascension mais il préfère cultiver le mystère en ne divulguant qu'une misérable photo du bloc nu. Ne nous méprenons pas, comme toutes celles signées Charles Albert, cette ascension doit être prise très au sérieux ; sa crédibilité n'est plus à démontrer.

As usual, Charles probably has a video of the climb but he prefers to cultivate the mystery by only revealing a miserable photo of the nude block. Do not misunderstand, like all those signed Charles Albert, this climb must be taken very seriously; its credibility is well established.

Yeah machine translation has gotten so good I can no longer be bothered to translate. Only five small errors (and a very French sentence structure in the second paragraph, that the machine couldn't really handle).

As usual, Charles probably has a video of the climb but he prefers to cultivate the mystery by only revealing a miserable photo of the nude block bare boulder. Do not misunderstand [us], like all those signed done by Charles Albert, this climb ascent must be taken very seriously; its his credibility is well established.

Cheers for that. Although it's a shame "nude block" isn't the correct translation.

Sick hard obviously but doesn’t look like a classic line.

Stefano Ghisolfi has done the 1st repeat of Perfecto Mundo, becoming the 4th human to climb 9b+.

(And Grimper magazine has just declared 9a+ to be unremarkable)

been useful to benchmark how high the ground is so that once a few inches of erosion have happened in the future we'll know where your arse needs to be to repeat it.

Surely it's time to start doing that shit with lasers and all.

Nathan Phillips did Gecko Assis 8B+ today. Along with countless other 8Bs and an 8B/+ in the last 2 weeks across Switzerland and France...
