Tumult' Asie 8A+ by Amadine Loury

Friday, 14 January

Amandine Loury, who previously has done seven 8c and harder routes, has done Tumult' Asie (8A+) in La Capelle. Interesting is that she pretty much started bouldering in 2021 and has already done four 8A's and harder. (c) Jeunet

For Tumulte Asie I had to find new beta because I was too small for doing the «original» mouvement. At the first session I did all the mouvement. At the second I had more tries of the sections. From the third session, I began to try the boulder to send it. I did a very good run and I was so surprising that I have put myself under pressure and I fell at the last difficult mouv but which was not the more difficult of the boulder. Two days after I came back in La Capelle, I was fine, but weather was too humid and humid rock hurts my finger skin.

So I rested two days and when I returned the conditions were very good to send the boulder. There was a lot of wind and the temperatures were cold. Almost too much... but despite it I did good runs but without success. I began to lose hope. But at the end of the day, I did a new run and with the very good cheering of my friends, I send Tumulte Asie, my first 8a+ bouldering and certainly the first feminin ascent of this boulder.”

How come you started bouldering just in 2021?
It is mostly because of winter conditions which makes it too cold for me to climb routes. I think that bouldering is a very good option to training for hard routes. Better than a climbing gym. So when the weather is favorable I go outside. At this start of the year also because of my work as I do not have a lot of time climbing routes. Bouldering sessions are shorter, so it’s better for me in my current life.

What about that "Objectif 👉 9a" you have posted on Insta?
I have started to try Supercrakinette 9a+ in Saint Léger du Ventoux. But I don’t like trying only one route for several months. So I try other routes according to my motivation.

Systematic Devaluing ethics

Debate/Jens: In trad climbing you are not allowed to have the gear or quickdraws in place and it was also like this in the beginning of the sport climbing era. Some ten years ago, you still had to place the draws if you were going to claim an onsight. The devaluation of ethics have continued and now…

No correlation between semi and final results for Top-4 in Boulder WCs

During the Bouldering World Championship in 2007, Daniel Dulac won the semifinal by flashing all four problems but in the final he did not do a single Boulder even if each of the other five finalists did three problems on average. Daniel said that it was extremely frustrating to hear the spectators …
