Enzo Oddo, the young French sport climbing star, has made swift work of the Céuse test pieces Dures Limites (F8c) and Ba Ba Black Sheep (F8c+), climbing the latter route in a single weekend.
He also added a new line to the Jurassic Park area of Gorge du Loup near Nice. Enzo has extended the route Zobble (F8c/8c+) moving left, crossing the route Nounours à la discotheque and leading to the anchor of PsychoPat.
Local climber and area expert Phil Maurel of Nice-Climb told UKClimbing.com:
"Like this, it's all natural and more resistant... and for sure 8c+"
The original finish of Zobble has sica holds which Enzo has now avoided with his extension. The name of the new route is Enzobble Extension F8c+.
Thanks go to Phil Maurel of Nice-Climb for the photographs.
