French phenom Seb Bouin has been in terrific climbing form lately. Having dispatched his long term project DNA (9c/39) in the Verdon Gorge earlier this year, he's now been more focused on repeating other hard routes. A trip to the Hanshelleren Cave in Flatanger, Norway gave him plenty of hard routes to try, with many unrepeated and extremely difficult Adam Ondra routes located at this crag.
Prolific hard-redpointer Alex Megos has been at it again. He has climbed a new route at Ceuse, France, in the '9b range'.
