The 17-year-old French climber Loïc Zehani was able to climb his first 9a this year with „L’évolution Arc-en-Ciel“ in his home crag Orgon in the southern French right at the beginning of the year. It was also his 11th route in this grade.
He needs about 4 sessions. the route is a connection between 3 routes in the sector „Petit et gros“. The first part is worth about 8b until a rest then the second part is an 8c of 40 movements. The 3 routes were bolted by Olivier Bert. The route is natural.
