After a one month break from climbing, Swiss couple CÚdric Lachat and Nina Caprez have returned to rock. It would seem the break has done them good as they have made quick repeats of difficult routes in their native country.

Nina repeated Stop sika, 8c, at Rawyl in five goes, Afterwards, local Rebekka Stotz managed to repeat the feat for her first of the grade.

At Salvan, CÚdric managed to make an onsight of Van de panique, 8c, and then a few days later at Rawyl he needed only three attempt for cabane au Canada, the 9a Adam Ondra onsighted recently.
To make it a bit of a challenge for himself, he made the ascent while the route was in full sun...

Coomenting on Adam's onsight, CÚdric said that he was very impressed by it.
