L'irreverence extension 9a FA by Loic Zehani (18)

Wednesday, 4 November

Loic Zehani has done his 19th 9a, out of which ten FA's, L'irreverence extension in Orgon. "This route is the extension of an 8c "Irreverence" (resistance in overhang). At the finish of this 8c, there is a good rest with one knee. Last year I had equipped the extension, around twenty movements and less steep but harder than the first part with powerful movements, 8c+/9a or 9a I think. You have also the possibility of starting with "Macumba" (8c) or the "Connection" (8c +) and ending in this extension. This gives a great route and a nice resistance test because there is no more rest with the knee. Surely a future 9a+."
