About 25 minutes of fight: I could not really speed my way up while sending "Speed Intégral" 9a ✔️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 4 days last year + 3 days this week and about 12 tries were needed to overcome what seems to be my first 9a (as 'La Cabane au Canada' in Rawyl is more probably 8c+). So psyched about it!!! 🤗 🤩⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This endurance testpiece on small holds was bolted in 1995 by @kammerlander_beat as a solid 8c+ and @cedriclachat added an extension in 2011 and proposed 9a. I would describe it as a real MASTERPIECE! Sustained like no other, all moves are great! As the name indicates you can't really slow down and hesitate or you find yourself falling completely pumped.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Even if I am not sure that the extension really adds a + to the 8c+ (I fought on the extension part while sending but never fell there), it felt harder than all the routes I climbed. I am not experienced in the 9th but I guess it is close to it. Future will tell but maybe I will have the chance to climb my first 9a a third time 😂⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Thank you David for these few days! Our climbing days and your support were in gold, let's meet us soon in the center of the universe 😉 Thanks to the local climbers for their encouragements and warm welcome @tobiasbitschnau 🙏⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Riding a good wave these days, I hope I don't get swallowed too fast 🏄‍♂️ 🤞⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Ps: a bad picture 📷 implies the least bad filter 😅⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @scarpa_de @lecomte.alpirando @patagoniaeurope @petzl_official @revolutionclimbingteam @escalpades
