After a trip to Rodellar, Spain (three 8c´s, one 8b onsight), Cedric Lo Piccolo came back „home“ to Les Gorges du Loup in great shape, snatching the 4th ascent of The Abysse, which now seems to have settled at 9a. Not content with this, he also climbed Hot Chil-X, 8c, the same day. Kairn Photo: Phil Maurel
