Aurélien Païs brings 9a to Auvergne


Aurélien Païs has made the first ascent of Docteur éthique at Saint-Sauves, Puy-de-Dôme, in the Auvergne region of France. The route, which basically traverses the whole crag, connects Nodulur, 8c, and finishes in La connexion, 8b+. The 80 move result weighs in around 9a and is the first of that grade in the region.

Last year Aurélien, who is better known as, Rélux, made the first ascent of Rock connexion, 8c+, a grade that has been confirmed by Benoît Heintz.
