Enzo Oddo, still only 16, has made the first ascent of La moustache qui fâche a project bolted by Yann Ghesquier, just left of Toni Lamiche's San ku Kaï at Entraygues.
The meat of the steep route boils down to a stack of three boulder sections without rest. Enzo says he thinks it must be a 9a+ as it is much harder than Condé de choc and San Ku Kaï, two 9a's Enzo had already done on the same crag.
This is Enzo's third 9a+ after Biographie at Céüse last year and Aubade direct at the Sainte-Victoire last month.
