Two 8c+' by Tanguy Merard (16)

Sunday, 6 September

Tanguy Merard, who has done two 9a's this year, has done two 8c+; Espace Challenge in Précipice de Corbière, "It's a very long route with a boulder just before the top. For me it was a big challenge to do the route in three days, (before leaving). I liked climbing on this long route, so funny to climb!" and Deltaplane man direct in Entraygues, "A bouldery route with a very interesting effort, really intense and I love it." (c) Antoine Mesnage

In July, the #1 in the junior ranking game, fell on the last move on Biographie 9a+ in Céüse. "Interesting to try the world's first 9a+. I will come back soon to try to send the route! I was close and I have to finish the work."
