Nico on an onsighting spree

Home  /  News  /  Current Page

With his van back on the road with a brand new motor (please no more mechanical problems!), Nicolas couldn’t wait to visit Siurana, Rodellar and Gorge du Tarn. Feeling in his optimal sport climbing shape, Nico was able to express himself fully on a binge of challenging onsights. During the month, he accomplished onsight ascents of three 8b’s, a 8a+/b, and ten 8a+ all onsight.*
Despite of all his performances Nico admits : “ One of my proudest onsight still remain a 6a (5-10b) called Ahab I did in Yosemite. After traveling and climbing in different environments, I feel more lost than ever trying to find a logic in ratings globally.”

Over the last two months Nicolas was able to onsight 25 routes of 8a or harder including fifteen 8a+. Go Nico!

*The 8b’s :
“Ramadan” – Siurana,
“Priez pour nous” L1+L2 – Gorge du Tarn
“Le plaisir qui demonte” – Gorge du Tarn

*The 8a+/b :
“Espiritu rebel” – Rodellar
