Florence Pinet retired from competition climbing a couple of years ago and has done several 8b+'s and 8b's since. Now she has taken it one step further.
After repeats of routes like Le concept and Le Nabab at St-Léger and Bout'chou at Buoux, Florence started this year off in the best possible way by doing Métaphysique des tubes, 8c, at Seynes for her first of the grade.
The route has previously been repeated by Caroline Ciavaldini.
Kairn already has a small interview (in French).
