Seb Bouin has made the second ascent of Adam Ondra’s Move 5.15b/c in the Flatanger cave in Norway. Bouin has now climbed 13 routes at 5.15a or harder, making him one of the best sport climbers.
Bouin belayed Ondra on the first ascent in 2013 and started working the steep climb in 2016. “I have to be a bit crazy to believe success is possible after such a long time in the route but finally it’s done,” said Bouin. “Move is one of the hardest route in the world, but that was not my first motivation. I chose this route because it’s a mega line, it’s hard and beautiful, and I was inspired.”
Bouin also commented on the grade and said, “About the grade. It’s the hardest route I’ve climbed, but I have no experience in 5.15c grades. So It could be easy 5.15c (Adam was thinking 5.15c but said 5.15b/c because this route or super hard 5.15b. I think the 5.15b/c grade could be the good one. Now it’s time to…. check another project. The one to the right looks like a good one. It’s called Silence.” Watch Bouin project Move below.
