No Kpote Only | 8C+ Boulder problem at Rocher Brule

Roughly translated, the name means Bareback only.

Before the problem was put up there used to be a wall in front of the boulder to make a bivouac spot. The wall was knocked down for reasons unknown. [1]

3 recorded ascents.

Climber Style FA Ascent Date Suggested Grade
Charles Albert Boulder (Worked) Dec 2018 9A

Ryohei Kameyama Boulder (Worked) 9th Mar 2019 8C+

Second ascent.

I have the feeling, Burden of Dreams [the world's first 9A, put up by Nalle Hukkataival] is a bit more difficult than No Kpote Only.

Nico Pelorson Boulder (Worked) 7th Oct 2020 8C (hard)

Third ascent.

With climbing shoes and optimized betas, it looks more like a solid 8c (v15).
