Durif climbs The Wall, 8c+

Charlotte Durif has made quick work, needing only 4 tries, of The Wall, at Combe La Vieille in the Bourgogne, her first 8c+. Because it was a FA (!), Charlotte invited some strong friends, Geoffray De Flaugergues, Gauthier Supper and Gabriel Josseron, to try the route and see what they thought. On his 5th try Geoffray made the 2nd ascent, confirming the grade.
