A couple of weeks ago, we reported about 16 year old Enzo Oddo's 2nd ascent of Gérôme Pouvreau's Aubade, 9a+, at Sainte-Victoire in southern France.

Now there's a video that's well worth watching. Doesn't look that hard, does it?

But then again, Enzo is not your ordinary punter. Although still only 16, this was his second 9a+, the other one being Biographie at Céüse. He has also done stuff like the 14m highball/solo Ambrosia, ~8A, and the only slightly lower The beautiful and damned, 8B, both at the Buttermilks in California.

Enzo Oddo is sponsored by: prAna, Sterling Rope, Petzl, Five Ten and Club Alpin Francais.
