Video : Seb Bouin climbs America’s hardest rock climb, Suprême Jumbo Love, 5.15c / 9b+

On November 1, 2022, the French climber Seb Bouin achieved one of his best performances, the linking of the hardest sport climbing route in the United States, Supreme Jumbo Love (Clark Mountain, California), proposed at 9b+ / 5.15c and unrepeated.

60 meters high and 80 meters long, the route is amazing: a direct start in 9a of 20 meters leads to the monstrous overhang which constitutes the original 9b Jumbo Love (equipped by Randy Leavitt in the 1990s and freed for the first time by the American Chris Sharma in September 2008).

Remarkably filmed by Christian Adam and Ben Neilson, the sequence of Suprême Jumbo Love by Seb Bouin deserves the attention of all climbers…
