Pierre Bollinger, has made the FA of Pyrrhus, 9a, at Gauxberg, in the Alsace, France.
The route can be divided into three parts. A hard 13 move ~8b is directly followed by a three move 8A boulder crux and then a bad, but also badly needed, rest where you can chalk up for the first time. All that stands between you and the top now is a four move ~7B boulder. This doesn't mean it's over though, as one of those moves is really random, lacking a better word, and Pierre fell here twice before his successful redpoint.
