After many serious first ascents in Ticino, young Ticino Giuliano Cameroni made his pilgrimage to Bouldermekka Fontainebleau. Along with Charles Albert He moved around the blocks and reported two days ago the commission of the 8c Boulder The Big Island at Coquibus Rumont.

The Big Island is a version of the Dave graham in the year 2008 first-line The Island, The Boulder was often traded as the last major line in Fontainebleau. For the compression boulder Dave proposed the level of difficulty 8c, which subsequent Boulderer but not confirmed. The general opinion was 8b +.

8c version by Vincent Pochon - and now Giuliano Cameroni

Parallel to Dave Graham also projected Vincent Pochon The Island, He, however, started two moves earlier, as he considered the starting position there more natural. This version is under the name today The Big Island (8c) and has now been made by Giuliano Cameroni dotted. If you take a look at the recent tours of Giuliano, then you suspect that he likes compression boulders:
