VIDEO: A muerte Bilou, 9a, by Seb Bouin

In late August, Seb Bouin made the first ascent of A muerte Bilou, 9a, in the obscenely steep Ramirole sector in the Verdon Gorge.

It's about 50 m long and overhangs roughly 60 degrees more or less all the way. The technical crux comes quite early, around the fifth bolt and is followed by a good rest in kneebar and then a pumpy 30m 8c to the top.

Here is the video!
