No Kpote Only (9A/V17) Gets Second Ascent, Possible Downgrade:from Climbing Magazine

This weekend Ryohei Kameyama, from Japan, made the second ascent of No Kpote Only in Fontainebleau, France. The problem, located on the back side of the Rocher Brûlé boulder, rose to prominence in January 2019 after Charles Albert made the first ascent of the line (barefoot) and proposed the grade of 9A/V17. No Kpote Only is the world’s second proposed 9A/V17 problem, and now the first to be repeated. Nalle Hukkataival’s Burden of Dreams, in Lappnor, Finland, was the first 9A/V17. It has not seen a second ascent. Kameyama reported his ascent on his Instagram account:
