Yves Gravelle Climbs New V14 in Quebec

Strong Quebec climber Yves Gravelle has sent a hard new problem at Kanata-Tremblant in Quebec and he’s suggesting V14 for the grade.

On Instagram, he said, “Finishing off this project was a dream come true and felt unbelievable. I feel so motivated to climb, explore and open more gems like this one.

“I called this problem Thessalhydra and proposing V14 for the grade!”

Gravelle is no stranger to hard problems, his first V14 was back in 2012 with a tick of Daniel Woods’ Echale in Clear Creek Canyon, Colorado.

Earlier this year, he made the first ascent of The Oracle V13 in Val-David.

He wrote on 8a.nu after his newest V14, “This is the sit start to High Tension. The boulder starts with a left side-pull and a right under-cling.

“The first three moves are very hard and require strong fingers, body tension and some biceps. I fell like the sit adds a V13 section to the stand.”
