5th 9a(ish) by Enzo Oddo

Enzo Oddo, who according to Joey Kinder has been to Fontainebleau, where he did his first 8A and 8B/+ trav(!), Olivier Lebreton's Katharsis, boulders, has made the 3rd(?) ascent of Dai Koyamada's Inga, 8c+/9a, first done in 2002 and repeated by Jon Cardwell last year, at Déversé/Deverland, Gorges du Loup. The route adds a 20-move 8B-ish roof boulder problem to the start of 7 pm Chaud, 8c. For an even harder challange, you can choose to go straight into PuntX, hard 9a, instead, but this hasn't been done yet.
I can only agree with Joey: "Dang lil man?. you are gonna run outta routes!!!".
