I always find it odd watching climbing videos. So many times you really can’t tell how difficult the climbing is since people like Fred Nicole, in the video below, flow through the moves so fluidly. They make it look so easy and until you can actually put your own hands on the holds, then you realize just how talented and dedicated these people are. Pretty amazing stuff.
Here’s Mr. Nicole climbing around in Switzerland, one of the projects he’s working on is coined Le Boa, which, although Nicole normally choosing not to rate his climbs, states it at about 8c (about V15!).
