Oriane Bertone devastating, first 8c/+ sport climbing
At Ouaki climbs (and downgrades) Chykungunya27 September 2018
An extraordinary Oriane Bertone climbs Chykungunya at Ouaki and leads to 8c/8c+ her maximum level with the rope (for now).
We are talking about her from a few years, since little more than a child resolved the first 8a and 8a+ block and today Oriane is one of the strongest climbers in circulation despite the only 13 years old. After that in January she had climbed Golden Shadow to Rocklands in fact, boulder of 8b+, now Oriane also centred the first 8c+ with the rope, Chykungunya, to which she assigns a personal 8c.
“The route is long with a bouldery and an uncertain crux at the beginning, and another second bouldery section at the top, less uncertain but harder. The holds are quite smooth with mostly some slopers. It’s the first ascent of the route and I did around 5-6 sessions in order to climb it.”
