The 18-year-old Frenchman Loïc Zehani reports with „Parle avec elle“ his next hard first ascent in this year. The thirty meter route was bolted twenty years ago by a friend of his father’s Jean Yves.

After „À contre courant“ 9a and „Teahupoo“ it was Loïc’s third ascent in grade 9a and more difficult this year. It was his 19th route in grade 9a and more difficult. Last year Loïc climbed his first 9b route with „Obsession„.
