Toru Nakajima just sent The Big Island (V15) in Fontainebleau. The line was originally authored by David Graham as The Island (V14) with an awkward crouch start. Vincent Pochon later added two moves to the beginning of the problem to establish The Big Island (V15).
The Big Island marks the next in a long line of hard bouldering sends by Nakajima, including the following:
-Fata Morgana (v12)
-The Traphouse Short (V13, flash)
-Sideways Daze (V13)
-Satan I Helvete (v13)
-Gecko assis (V14)
-The Traphouse (V14)
-The Big Island (V15)
Check out some cool footage below of Vincent Pochon on The Big Island.
