Schulte on <em>Elephunk</em> (V13). Photo by Stephan Denys. ” />Chris Schulte has continued <a href=his European send fest by repeating Nalle Hukkataival’s Realist as well as repeating Elephunk (V13) during the same afternoon in Fontainebleau.

“It’s a funny problem,” says Schulte of Realist. “When Nalle put it up he thought maybe V13/14, but someone much taller has apparently repeated it using a big hold out right that’s way out of reach for the average sized person (and it was hidden by moss.)”

Schulte climbed Realist using Nalle’s original method, but is still unsure of the boulder problem’s grade.

“It was -4 degrees Celcius (25 degrees Farenheit), so pretty sticky,” says Schulte. “And [Realist] was made for me. Probably close to V12? Reminds me of Kheops (V13), but longer and less technical.”

Schulte is still in Fontainebleau where he continues to work his long-term project The Big Island (V15).
