Quentin Chastagnier has done the FA of Elixir 8c+ in Tetard Park sector of St.Pancrasse crag, in the area of Grenoble.
The route was bolted during last spring b Chastagnier la primavera scorsa, at the same time that two others, « “Les pères chartreux “ e “le Bat”, next to Elixir
In an interview at Kairn Quentin so describes the new itinerary : after 20 meters 7c+/8a on a yellow rock, there is a rest under a small roof and then about 15 difficult moves all on fingers on a blue bombé. At the end a kind of "reward" on a easy dalle with big holes.
St Pancrasse (or Luisset) is a beautiful site near Grenoble, facing the Grésivaudan valley and hosts a lot of any level routes.
