When choosing a project far from home, Seb Bouin realizes the challenges associated with distance.
Not only when it comes to the difficulty of the route, but also in terms of motivation, focus and personal growth.
But Move 9b/9b+ in Flatanger, Norway, was the perfect challenge and he couldn’t resist. Now he’s fully committed and on to what he calls the “logical next step” of his progression.
Bouin has climbed over 30 routes between 5.14d and 5.15b and has many first ascents up to 5.15.
Move was first climbed in 2013 by Adam Ondra. “I think he definitely has the level to do it,” said Ondra about Bouin.
“Now it’s kind of more a mental game and also a question of patience. Waiting for the best day and best try to give it everything he has.”
