Alizée Dufraisse has repeated Coma sant pere, 8c+, at Margalef, Spain.Alizée is once again back in Spain where she has her long time projects, one of which is La Rambla original, ~9a+. Lately, she has climbed some easier stuff, though "easier" should by no means be interpreted as "easy"...
I'm super happy with my stay in Catalonia. After intensive training Innsbruck in August and September, I planned to finish my season "quiet" in Siurana leaving aside my big projects and do some easier routes...
The weather is still too hot to Siurana in October, so we tagged along with Felix Neumärker to Margalef, a crag that I don't know very well.
it started well with my first one day ascent of an 8b, Via del Quim, followed closely by Aitzol, 8c in a few days.
Coma sant pere, 8c+, is a 45m a very athletic route through a big steep wall. It took me eight days of work to achieve this wonderful line.
Alizée still has three weeks left in Catalunya, so there is still room for more climbing. Perhaps some work on a certain project at Siurana?
