Is that still banned or OK now? Went for a look there when at buoux a while ago. What a crag.

Climbing at Lourmarin has been banned since 1999 and is still banned. Purportedly for "bird protection". Climbing there, you risk a heavy fine.

OTOH Playboy Rode sans Complexe was put up in 2015. Etc.

Still, probably best not to shout about it on Instagram though!

Such a shame it's banned. After a week of getting spanked at buoux we were drooling at the sight of steep climbing with decent holds

Isn't that why people go climbing nowadays?

Mayby second ascent to "No Kpote Only" wasn't a mistake or luck at all...

"ryohei_kame: Today, I send "La Révolutionnaire" (8c+/v16 ) ! 2nd ascent. I'm really happy!"

The 9A grade seems to have been a mistake, non?

In slightly less significant news, Gonzalo Larrocha just did the 26th recorded ascent of La Ramla. La Ramla is his second 9a+. (https://www.instagram.com/p/BvEHQYxl9AU/)

and jens knows la rambla should be 9a, but for grade inflation

edited to reflect jens' statement better

Ryohei Kameyama has repeated Délire Onirique assis. Most significant for being the first ascent wearing a whole pair of shoes and without the figure four it appears.

Excellent news! Though from watching her lap the lower half repeatedly the other day not that surprising

Even if it is blinkered nonsense

Great write up about the 3rd ascent of Transcendence:

https://www.ukclimbing.com/news/2019/03/dan_varian_makes_the_third_ascent_of_transcendence_e8_6c-71896

Robin was/is such a beast. Good to see him getting proper acknowledgement.

I held Robin’s ropes when he repeated it.  I’ll always remember because he was mid crux and then slapping for the break when a RAF Tornado roared past the crag a few meters away with a body shaking, terrifying, ear splitting boom just as he grabbed the break with one hand just as I clamped both of mine over my ears with the ropes held lightly in one hand. I was mightily relieved that he didn’t fall off.  Great days 😳

I've had that at Bowden, though leading a lowly VS (The Scoop IIRC). Shat me up good and proper.
