Psyched to climb Ultime démence, but unable to find a partner for the trip, Charlotte Durif decided to go for something different, and quite spectacular. Grabbing a 100m rope and an extensive number of quick draws, she set off to try to onsight the first, not two, not three, but four pitches. What's more is that these pitches aren't exactly easy: 8a+, 8a, 8a+ and 7c+.
What's unbelievable is that she succeeded!
Of course, the L1+L2+L3+L4 hasn't got a grade but L1+L2 is roughly 8a+ (a bit odd I think if L1 is supposed to be 8a+, but I guess there's good rest) and L3+L4 roughly 8b+.
Not quite content, she then set her eyes on the first two pitches of La Ramirole, 8a+/b and 8a in their own right. Charlotte linked them together into one single pitch. Onsight of course...
