Il n'est jamais trop tard 8c+ by Paul Jenft (17)

Wednesday, 23 September

Paul Jenft, who was #10 in Briancon, has beside his first 9a, done his third 8c+ during the last four weeks, Il n'est jamais trop tard in La Balme.

"It is a route bolted by Philippe Mussato in La Balme. Mathieu Bouyoud did the first ascent of this line last year and he motivated my to try the route. It is composed by two sections where the first is powerful with big moves. Then there is a good rest with two kneebars. The second section is more technical. It begins with a crux with a jump to a crimp and then there are pumpy moves until the top. I needed six attempts during two sessions to take it down."
