After a World Cup season that didn't go entirely according to plan, with the exception of the final competition in Barcelona where she was 10th, Alizée Dufraisse seems to have picked up her game again.

Still in Spain her goal this time was to repeat Chikane a 25m fingery 8c+ in the old school Campi Qui Pugui sector at Siurana.

Apparently this will have to wait however, because to everyone's surprise, she has now managed to repeat the 40m rig Patinoso. This route, located in Siurana's El pati-sector, can be described as a true endurance testpiece with no distinct cruxes.

Her hardest routes before this was l'Arcadémicien, hard 8c, (in 2010) and Dures limites, 8c, (in 2009), both at Céüse, France.

Rig, I like it. I saw Alizee dogging Estado Critico (9a), also at El Pati, just before sunset today. My god that whole wall is so impressive.
