Steppe de pierres, new 9A in Calanques

 
Steppe de pierres, new 9A in Calanques
 
March 11, 2011 -  Rémy Bergasse    
 

After a week in Margalef, where I did the beautiful "Bumaye" (8c+), back to France to realize my project : "Steppe de pierres", 9a. Last week with my girlfriends and some friends we went to Spain : Margalef. First days were top to climb, but weather forces us to go back to France on Friday. But motivation was there and I could top out "Bumaye", short powerful 8c+, right version of the Sharma project "first round first minute". Some photos of the route are here.

 

And just before we came back to France, although it was raining every hour, I could onsight the classic "Photo-shot" (8b). Hard conditions, espacially for sleeping outside! but at least it was a really inspiring trip. When you want, if you are determined enough, you will always manage to reach your objective! Two days after, I returned in my project, the 20 years old project of "Steppes de pierres" in Calanques (near Marseille, where i live!).

And with a sensation of very great shape, I reach the top of the route!! A step harder from Bumaye, I think this could be 9a. Second of the year for me!!

To see more, here is a video of the ascent.
