Lachat flashes Demons et merveilles

© Cedric Lachat
Cedric Lachat has flashed Demons et Merveilles, 8b+, at Ariège in the French Pyrenees. Cedric followed the steep tufas all the 40 metres to the 3rd anchor for the full value. The route is 8a+ to the first, and 8b to the 2nd anchor, so depending on how much of your powder is still dry, you can pretty much just keep going.
He also redpointed an 8c called Talisman. Source: Kairn

Nice one Cedric! I'm even more impressed by the photo of the wet cave or scramble. Looks like a lad who would enjoy Strans Gill *** on a wet day.

I think he was auditioning for Gollum.
