With the temps about to peak, everyone seems to be rolling into Bishop to try and squeeze in that last send before it gets hot. Alex Johnson paid a visit two weeks ago and walked away with a proud send, Nalle Hukkataival is currently camped out there and dispatching many of the hard lines in the area, and we just got news about some guy named Guillaume Glairon Mondet, alias G2, who is on a hot streak. You are probably asking yourself, who is G2?

G2 is some “no name” from France that has so far crushed some of the proudest lines in the Buttermilks including theMandala Sit (V13/14), Direction (V13),The Oracle (V13), Xavier’s Roof (V11), Baburre Short (V11), Haroun and the Sea of Stories (V11/12), and numerous other double-digits. And, before making his journey over to the US he also managed to grab an ascent ofBoogalagga (V13), Kheops (V13), and Gecko Assis (V14). Again, you may ask why haven’t we heard of this guy?
We can’t say for sure. We have seen that he quietly dispatches one hard line after another with little or no press so we thought it would be great to show some respect and shed some light on his abilities. And, in case you can’t mouth Guillaume Glairon Mondet, just remember it is G2 for short.

Look for an interview with G2 later this month in Pro-Files.
