After his and Flo Pinét's quick success on Une jolie fleur dans un peau vache, the multi pitch in the Verdon Gorge, Gérôme Pouvreau went to Dévérsé a.k.a. Deverland, in the Gorge du Loup north of Nice where he made the second ascent of Cédric Lo Piccolo's Triptiktonik nouvelle version.
Originally the route was given 8c+ (considered hard for the grade by many), but now, after Cédric removed the two holds made of sika at the crux after William Lebert found a way to solve it without them, it's gone up to 9a, much like Le Cadre at Céüse.
Thanks Kairn for bringing my attention to this.
