Val-David has at least one V12, Seb Lazure’s 2009 Crazy Belly. And there are about five V11s, including Ultra Belly, Buddha Belly, Le Purgateur, Cowboy Low and Ultra Cowboy.

After his big send, Gravelle noted, “Just sent my longest standing project in Val David… six years of hard work. Psyched!”

Gravelle has ticked a number of hard problems in the past, including the first ascent of Certified Gangsta V13 in Edelweiss Valley, Quebec, and Echale V14 in Colorado.
