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.
