La Mer A Boire V10!

Seb has some experience with hard dynos putting down classic Heuco Tanks dyno's Scream V10, Free Willy V10, Flight of the Thick Bird V10 (FA), and Li V13 in less than a handful of tries each. So when it required a handful of sessions to put down Ghislain's La Mer A Boire, you know that's some serious business. 

Orignally a V8 sandbag, we suspect Ghislain made a mistake translating from the font grades since it's closer to 8A than V8. It has resisted all attempts at a repeat for the last 10 years. Imagine compressing all the difficulty of Kleos V10 into a single move and you are approaching something resembling La Mer A Boire. This thing is going to see far fewer ascents than Kleos over the coming years, so deserves at least grade parity. 

Props to Seb for the impressive send and Ghislain for putting up such a visionary line!
