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!”
I took a last minute decision this morning and decided to take advantage of these perfect sending temps to finish off this king line! 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! @team.crg @samueltiukuvaara @beastmakers @flashedclimbing @escalade_quebec #climbing_videos_of_instagram #climbing #climbing_lovers #thessalhydra #v14 #bouldering #laurentides #kanatatremblant
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.”
