Sachidananda 9a+ by Victor Guillermin (16)

21 April 2022

Victor Guillermin reports on Insta that he has done the third ascent of Gerome Pouvreau's Sachidananda 9a+ in Orgon from 2009, which was bolted in 1990 by Jérome Rochelle. The 16-year-old has previously done one 9a, Estado Critico. In 2019 he did five IFSC Youth Cups and his best result was #18. In 2020, he was #2 in his only Euro Youth Cup and last weekend he won a French Youth Cup. "It was incredible to be back in lead mode comp, and winning this french cup in Marseille gave me a lot of confidence for outdoor projects!🤣"

What has been the secret to your success and progress over the last few years?
The thing that has changed since 2019 is the frequency and the seriousness of training. I think the progress is quite easy to explain: it is just a lot of serious training. Because I'm in a normal high school, and I don't have so much time to train, so when I train, I train hard to complete my dreams ; ) It was incredible to be back in lead mode comp, and win this french cup in Marseille gave me a lot of confidence for outdoor projects!🤣

What are your comp dreams for 2022?
It would be awesome to make podiums in European Youth Cup, to be able to qualify for European Championship and even World Championships... where a podium would be a dream...
