Alizée Dufraisse's first days at Bishop, CA, have been nothing short of impressive. Already on the first day she did Bubba gump, 7C+, and she followed this up with ascents of Cocktail sauce and Center direct for two more of the grade in a day.
Now, she has taken it one notch further however, with Bubba butt buster, 8A, a pumpy traverse on sharp pockets. If I interprete Alizée correctly, she did it second go! Can't be that many women who've done both 8c route and 8A boulder.
Guillaume Glairon Mondet has also done well. No Mandala yet, but a proud flash of the tall Haroun and the sea of stories, 8A/+.Alizée Dufraisse is sponsored by Beal, Five Ten, prAna, Petzl, Expression and Power'n play
