When choosing a project far from home, Seb Bouin realizes the challenges associated with distance: Not only when it comes to the difficulty of the route, but also in terms of motivation, focus and personal growth. But Move 9b/9b+ in Flatanger, Norway, was the perfect challenge and he couldn’t resist. Now Seb’s fully committed, and on to what he calls the "logical next step" of his progression.

Diese Route hat zwei Startmöglichkeiten. Entweder man startet weit unten in der Höhle und krallt sich an kleinen Leisten durch ein 4 Meter Volldach bis man an die Henkellippe kommt, was schätzungsweise bei fb 8b+ einpendelt. Die andere Startversion hat einen Jumpstart von einem riesigen Block direkt an die Lippe der Dachkante.
