Just a few notes from around the world...
  • Christophe Zehani keeps developing Gargantua, close to Avignon. His latest creation is called La zénitude absolue ou la folie gargantuesque (The absolute zenitude or gargantuan madness), 8c+.
  • Mike Fuselier, whose Nice to eat you saw a 3rd ascent this weekend, has made the FA of 8a.nul (8a.no or zero) at the same crag, Pierrot beach, Vercors. Mike needed only two attempts!
  • Tino Lois has done a few nice onsights at Rodellar: Tripa de conejo (rabbit gut), 8b+, Btr (?), 8b and Alter ego, 8b.
  • Matt Wilder has made the FA of Cheating reality, 8b+ R/X, on the north face of the Devil's thumb, near boulder Colorado.
