New 9a by François Nicole

My favourite photo site,, reports François Nicole has finally completed his long term project at Saint-Triphon, Vaud, Switzerland. The rather short powerful Amazonie involves a crimpy section leading up an astonishing all points off right-hand dyno followed by another bunch of "edgy" moves. François has given Amazonie, 9a.
He's no newbie at this level having done both his own Bimbaluna, ~9a/+, and his brother Fred's Bain de sang, ~8c+/9a, both at Saint Loup.
