Le monde perdu 8a+ by Cathy Wagner (53)

Cathy Wagner has done her 149th 8a+, Le monde perdu in Destel. "Ultra major! A bow in the ceiling, as it is physical! 2 big rises of work that literally dismounted me, then one in the heat today and it does it in the wake, pushed by the sticky and the encouragement of Seb! It feels good when the cash returns after 3 weeks of a persistent bust! (Google translate).

In total the 53 year old has done 703 routes 8a to 8b during the last 25 years. Interestingly, like one third she has done second go. Possibly it is time to raise the bar to 8b+ in 2019?

Great onsight achievement by Google Translate

You should admire the poetry of 'a bow in the ceiling' and sexual innuendo of 'one in the heat'.

And it does indeed feel good when the cash returns (;

especially after having been "pushed by the sticky" :)

"Ultra majeur!
Une proue dans le plafond, comme c'est physique! 2 grosses montées de travail qui m'ont littéralement démontée, puis une à l'échauf aujourd'hui et ça le fait dans la foulée, poussée par la collante et les encouragements de Seb! Ça fait du bien quand la caisse revient après 3 semaines d'une crève tenace!!"

And here's my comment in English, hoping it's making sense (unlike Google mistranslations...)
"An exceptional route defined by a very physical endurance effort (for me anyway) as you climb on the edge of a prow-like overhang. Took me 2 days to get the right beta and was totally wasted afterwards! Today, I managed to send it straight away after warming-up, thanks to the perfect conditions and Seb cheering me. Getting fit again after a bad cold which lasted 3 weeks feels good!"

Yes, definitely much more sense now (; Thanks for the translation and congratulations for the ascent(s)!
