Supercrackinette 9a+ by Nolwen Berthier

21 April 2022

Nolwen Berthier, who previously has done two 8c+', reports on Insta that she has done Supercrackinette 9a+ in St Léger. (c) Antonin Rhodes

Previously, only eight females have done 9a+ or harder. Nolwen stopped competing in 2019 after having been Top-30 in the World Cup 15 times, mainly in Lead.

"Over the last few months, I’ve devoted a lot of energy trying to align all the parameters necessary for the send (shape, weather conditions, motivation, etc.) This weekend, the stars aligned in my favour. For the first time, I succeeded in the first crux which was really hard for me… and I didn’t fall at the top! Ideal scenario, I dreamed of it, but the probability of making it real was very limited. I still can’t believe it!"

How many sessions are we talking and what about special or replica training?
I made 20 sessions over the 5 past months + I tried a lot last year from january to june. For the specific training, I made the choice to train mostly in the route rather than do some replica for exemple.
