Sébastien Bouin makes first repeat of Fred Rouhling’s De l’autre Côté du Ciel
French rock climber Seb Bouin has made the first repeat of another Fred Rouhling 1990’s testpiece, De l’autre Côté du Ciel at Les Eaux Claires.
After Hugh and Akira, Sébastien Bouin has now made the long-awaited first repeat of another Fred Rouhling climbing milestone, De l’autre Côté du Ciel at Les Eaux Claires. The route in question breaches the huge roof via a highly physical sequence of moves, almost all of which were chipped by Rouhling prior to the first ascent in 1997. The route lay unrepeated until now and 27-year-old Bouin, during his Vintage Rock Tour in search of hardest routes in France of the 80’s and 90’s, obviously couldn’t give skip this one.
