Fred Rouhling does Bain de Sang (F9a)

Fred Rouhling has made the 3rd ascent of Fred Nicole's Bain de Sang (F9a) at Saint Loup, according to 8a.nu (quoting Grimper Magazine in a very roundabout way); the second ascent by Francois Nicole. Fred only needed a few tries to nail it, apparently.

The route was first done in 1993 and is ranked around the fourth-hardest in the world (or so..) We've struggled to find a picture of the route, which as we recall is a staggeringly smooth, surprisingly vertical route.
