French young-gun hits good form with multiple F8c+ ascents.

Enzo Oddo, the young French sport climbing star, has made swift work of the Céuse test pieces Dures Limites (F8c) and Ba Ba Black Sheep (F8c+), climbing the latter route in a single weekend.

He also added a new line to the Jurassic Park area of Gorge du Loup near Nice. Enzo has extended the route Zobble (F8c/8c+) moving left, crossing the route Nounours à la discotheque and leading to the anchor of PsychoPat.

Local climber and area expert Phil Maurel of Nice-Climb told

"Like this, it's all natural and more resistant... and for sure 8c+"

The original finish of Zobble has sica holds which Enzo has now avoided with his extension. The name of the new route is Enzobble Extension F8c+.
