Czech Adam Ondra sent PuntX in Deverse, Gorge de Loup, southern France yesterday. The route is considered as 9a or may be 9a+.
"After 2 days and half in July...," our friend Phil Maurel from Nice climbing web nice-climb.com reported, "I received a sms from Adam, Saturday evening, who tell that he will be there from Sunday until next Friday... And Sunday evening, he send me another one to tell me that it was done... ! This guy goes too fast... "
The route was bolted by Cédric Lo Piccolo and done by Alex Chabot in August 2007. It is about 20 meters of stamina and boulder problems without any good rest!
Recently German Andreas Bindhammer did the 2nd redpoint and he thinks it is at least 9a+.
