Clément Lechaptois sends with „Solitary Daze in the Swiss bouldering crag of Fionnay, his third 8C boulder. After „Malédiction assis„, it was his second first ascent in this grade, after he also repeated „Foundation’s Edge„. „Solitary Daze“ starts like „Permanent Midnight“ (8B) (a Dave Graham boulder) and then straight up directly through the 50° roof.

Sooo stoked to have found my way up on this thing on which I’ve been damn psyched lately. I often had a look at this project when being in Fionnay but never really took the time to try. Coming back from ZA, I was looking for new stuffs not that far from home, and I’ve been happy to found this problem and to be that motivated to come back to this beautiful valley. Once again I was fortunate enough to share the good vibes w/ great people.
