The french number one, Christophe Zéhani set another connection at“grotte des Branches“ (Ardèche/France), last friday. L´intégrale de matador links an 8a to La bouga (8b+/c). For this route, Christophe is not sure for the grade : 8c or 8c/c+, but he thinks the route should be soon repeated as the 75 moves are fantastic ! First ascent is due to Laurent Vigouroux, two weeks ago.
