Gérôme Pouvreau has had a good weekend at Pic St-Loup, France, making the first ascent of a 9a and flashing an 8b+/c.

After finding a better method for the crux, he managed to make the first ascent of Moksha, 9a, a 50 meter "king line". This was the 8th route of 9a or harder by Gérôme

Later, he also flashed Arahanta, 8b+/c, a route recently put up by Loïc Fossard.
