Loic Zehani FA's Quartiers Nord (9b)

Loic Zehani has done the FA of Quartiers nord (9b) in Orgon, which is a new six-bolt start to Bronx (8c+), bolted by his father. (c) Samantha Ducos

In total I think this route took me around twenty sessions. Amazing first part, natural and so powerful. Maybe 8B boulder out of the first twelve movements followed (without rest) by 10 movements around 7C/C+ boulder. After that you climb the second part of Bronx (8c+). Crazy morning when I sent it twice in one hour because the wind had knocked down the camera during the first send ... the second send the camera (positioned in the car ) did not fall! The conditions are amazing with a massive south-east wind.”
