Kajsa Rosén has repeated Qoussaï les maux de la fin (8b+) and Hot Chilli-X (8b+), both 8c and both in Gorges du Loup, just west of Nice in southern France.

Between a disappointing Senior World Championship in Paris and the upcoming Junior World Championships in Guangzhou, China, Kajsa felt she needed an inspirational trip to the south of France. She certainly seems to be enjoying herself!

Earlier this year the Swedish #1 shocked herself and much of the climbing world by onsighting T-1 Full Equip (8b+)8c, flashing Humildes Pa'casa (8b+), 8b+, doing Fish Eye (8c), 8c, 3rd go and redpointing Mind Control (8c)8c, during one week at Oliana.

Les Gorges du Loup, just WEST of Nice in southern France. And the name of the route is Qoussai les maux de la fin.
Thanks, I've linked the routes up to the Logbook database entries.

Cool. A talented and hardworking climber I've heard. I wonder who will be the first female to climb 9a+? There seem like there might be quite a few capable now, Kajsa, Janja and several other WC competitors could be up to it.
