Florence Pinet and Gérôme Pouvreau are currently in Margalef, Spain, where they have made some note worthy repeats.

By repeating Coma sant pere in the Cathedral sector, Florence has done her first 8c+, which is truly world class. She needed five days of work.

She also did Terrence hill and Via del quim, both 8b+.

Meanwhile, Gérôme did Era Vella, 9a, a route he failed to do a couple of years ago when he fell off the ~7a exit moves after all the hard climbing was done...

He also flashed Via del quim and Aitzol, both 8b+.
