First up we've got news from German crusher Jon Hojer, who's just made the first ascent of "Le Marathon de Boissy" in Fontainbleu. He's graded the problem 8C and it's the second time he's made a first ascent at this grade in Fontainbleu after he climbed "Jour de Chasse" in December last year. Despite his impressive climbing achievements both outdoors and on the competition circuit (He won last years Bouldering World Cup in Innsbruck), he's possibly best known for this unbelievable video of him training, which went viral last year. It's always worth a quick watch! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DFojqoAfJ7g Up next we've got a clip from an incredible video from Project Yosemite. 2 years ago they produced an HD video of timelapse footage from America's best known climbing valley and they've now created a second version which is even more amazing. Get a glass of wine, put this on full screen and get ready to be awe inspired. http://www.projectyose.com/ https://vimeo.com/87701971 Jan Hojer Makes 1st Ascent of 'Le Marathon de Boissy' 8C/5.14b | EpicTV Climbing Daily, Ep. 238
