Nalle Hukkataival Sends L’Alchimiste

On March 4, Nalle Hukkataival sent his year-long project L’Alchemiste in France’s boulder mecca of Fontainebleau, in effect earning the first ascent since the crux holds were hammered off the original climb 17 years ago. When it was first sent by Marc Le Menestral in 1996, this boulder was considered to be one of the hardest problems in all of Font. Watch as Nalle puts this project to rest.
