In spring, Sébastien Bouin managed the first ascent of the route Les yeux plus gros que l'antre (LACRUX reported). Recently a video of the ascent is online.

After the first ascent struck Seb Bouin Carefully 9a + / b before, but added that the route is heavier than Chilam Balam and Pachamama (both classics in Spain). The route would therefore be more likely to be located in area 9b. But that in itself is unimportant. The route Les yeux plus gros que l'antre lies in the Verdon Gorge, is heavily overhanging and, believe it or not, 60 meters long. A portion of stamina and two kneepads are necessary to get the route to walk. See for yourself.
