Alizée Dufraisse has struck yet again by repeating another 8c+ in the El Pati sector at Siurana, thereby getting even closer to her end goal, La Rambla.
The route in question this time, El Rastro, 8c+, shares the same line as it's "big brother" La Rambla, 9a+, for 3/4 of the way. After the traverse and the two dynos, it goes even further left to an easier, 8b-ish, finish.
Alizée's siege tactics has so far meant attacking from first the right, La Reina mora and the left El Rastro. Next up is Broadway, yet another 8c+ on the same wall.
The combat continues and Alizée says she doesn't know yet whether she will end up on top before she has to leave in mid April.
Let's hope she does!
