8c RP and 8a+ OS by Max Bertone (14)

20 April 2021

Max Bertone went to St Legér with his father Stefano while his sister Oriane got the silver in Meiringen. First he onsighted his first 8a+, Mélodie pour un ami ardéchois, and later he did La théorie des cordes 8c in his second session. "Special beta for short climbers :-). It felt easier than the 8c I climbed in Reunion Island but very interesting to climb !"

Stefano: I went 3 days in St Léger with Max during the WC because The French Minister of Foreign Affairs decided not to send the Youth B to the European Championship in Perm. Max was qualified in both Lead and Boulder and we had to find another challenge for him as he was so disappointed.
