Macumba Club 8c for Josune Bereziartu

Josune Bereziartu sends Macumba Club 8c , Orgon, France

There’s no stopping Josune Bereziartu at the moment! Two short trips to the South of France have resulted in an impressive ascent of the stamina testpiece "Macumba Club" 8c at Orgon, First climbed by the Frenchman J.B. Tribout, Bereziartu almost sent this 50+ move route on the fourth day, only to fail on the final hard moves. She returned home for work but three days later she was back to finish where she had left off.

“You know, you assimilate the moves, you rest, recover well and the super-high motivation does the rest. This route is mythical for me because I remember when I visited Orgon for the first time, eight or more years ago, how great climbers such as J.B. Tribout, Francois Coffy, and Legrand were there trying to redpoint it. I just stood in awe.”

Congratulations. And is Bronx next on the agenda?
