Hard 8c by Alizée Dufraisse

© Alizée Dufraisse

Alizée Dufraisse, who now seems to have decided climbing, as opposed to pole vaulting, is her number one sport, has made the first post broken hold repeat of Sylvain Millét's l'Arcadémicien at Céüse. The very technical and fingery route, is now considerably harder than before and Alizée suggests "hard 8c", which would make it the hardest route climbed by a woman at Céüse.

Didnt Mayan smith from nz do this last year when it was still 8c?

Yes, she did. And now it's a tad harder, perhaps even 8c+.
