Melissa LeNevé has made the first female ascent of Arnaud Ceintre's La cicatrice de l'ohm, ~8B, at Mare aux Corneilles, Fontainebleau.

This was the first of the grade for Melissa in Fontainebleau, and only the second female ascent of an ~8B in the area after Catherine Miquel's ascent of Trafic.

Regarding the question of wether it's a traverse or not, she told Fanatic Climbing:

Hard to say. The first time I went there with Caroline Sinno I found the line very nice. It's starting from the ground to the top, so for me it's less a traverse than "Misti" for example, but there are 10-15 moves to link to the top...

The problem is very crimpy with a crux on small edges and hard body tension. It took me 4/5 sessions with sometimes poor conditions.
