Cedric Lachat and Nina Caprez have made the 2nd and 3rd ascent of the ~150m technical slab multi-pitch Délicatessen, 8b, 7c+, 7c, 8a, 6c, at Punta du Corvu-Bavella, Corsica.
The route was put up by Arnaud Petit and Stéphane Husson back in 2002, and shortly before Cedric and Nina made their ascents, Arnoud and Stephanie Bodet re-equipped the whole thing.
I have to admit that Délicatessen is the most beautiful and aesthetic line I've climbed so far. Its difficulty is mainly given by the very dedicated style rather than by the physical effort. Your feet and legs are suffering much more than your arms!;-)
I absolutely recommend this piece of art to everybody!
