Sahara 9a+ and an 8c flash by Loic Zehani (18)

Sunday, 6 September

Loic Zehani, who previously has done 21 routes 9a to 9b, has done three more impressive ascents including his first 8c flash, Stay kratom stay safe in St Leger, Sahara 9a+ in Gargantua and Sang neuf 9a in Pierrot Beach.

"My father flashed me the route. It is his project. Sahara" is a connexion of "Fésert convoité" 8c , "Lunatique" 8c and La fiesta del biceps" 8c+ . It's beginning with a natural boulder section and after it's very resistant. After a 9a and a physical rest, you must do an 8b/b+ very physical too. It's one of the most difficult connexions in the cave. It is unfortunately not a natural route but this is a very interesting effort. Four days before "Sahara", I sent "Sang neuf" 9a at Pierrot beach. It took me 2 days."

Loic's father is Christophe (46) who has done two 8c's in 2020. The last time he did a 9a, out of a handful, was four years ago.
