Pierre Le Cerf climbs his first 9a, Kick Ass at Gorges du Loup
The French climber asserts himself on rock also01 August 2019
First 9a for the 19 years old French climber Pierre Le Cerf who did Kick Ass at Gorges du Loup.
Important target reached for the strong French athlete Pierre Le Cerf who in the Maritime Alps, in Gorges du Loup, repeated Kick Ass, a 9a pitch equipped by Cédric Lo Piccolo, Pierre's coach, and freed by Enzo Oddo in 2012. It is the first of this grade for the two-time French champion Lead and one of Boulder and it is short but very physical, where in 20 movements it exceeds a roof of 50°/60° before the chain. Obviously this is just a drop in the middle of the sea of performance that counts but it is still an important step for a boy who, both in 2018 and in 2019, took home a first place in the European Cup and therefore bodes well for the future.
