13-Year-Old Oriane Bertone Making the First Ascent of a V13
Her new problem, Le Spartiate direct assis, a V13 (8B) in Réunion, France. This is just the latest double-digit send for her this year!
Oriane wrote of the new problem, “May be the hardest thing I have climbed. It is the direct variant of ‘Le Spartiate’ sit (8A), that I have climbed 3 years ago. the line comes out straight up from the ramp of slopers with a very hard couple of movements in comparison with the 8A original version end on the right. How much work for these few movements !! I am very happy for this first ascent!”
