PuntX 9a by Muriel Sarkany (39)

NUMBERS

21 November 2013

Muriel Sarkany, one of the best competition climbers in the history, has done PuntX 9a in Gorges du Loup. When Alex Chabot put it up in 2007 he did not give a grade but said, "the hardest route in Gorges du Loup", although three more 9a's already existed. Josune Bereziartu, Charlotte Durif, Sasha Digulian and Alizee Dufraisse have previously claimed the 9a grade. Between 1997 and 2004, Muriel won the Overall WC 5 times and the remaining 3 years she was runner-up! The 153 cm tall stopped competing in 2010 and has since been doing some great progress peaking so far being 39 years old. ""It is a dream which becomes reality! To make one 9a, I dreamed about it and I did not think that it would become true one day. I looked a lot to find this route and as soon as I tried it, I felt that one day I could make it. I did not make all the moves and I couldn't do three sequences without stopping. The holds are small and the moves are bouldery but it wasn't morpho for me;-) It was a big investment in time and in energy, but the result was really worth it! Ready for the next project ;-) but while waiting for to find it, I have only a desire: Try many new routes"
