9a for Alizee Dufraisse

Alizee Dufraisse has become the fourth woman to climb a 9a (5.14d) with her recent ascent of La Reina Mora, located in the La Rambla sector of Siurana, Spain. This route was bolted by Alex Huber in 1996, and since then has only been climbed by three people: Ramon Julian Puigblanque, Dani Andrada and Nicolas Favresse.

Dufraisse is on a tear, having climbed Patinoso 5.14c just recently.

Writing on her blog, Dufraisse describes La Reina Mora as being sustained power-endurance and having three boulder problems as hard as V9.

Her ascent on January 23 makes her the fourth woman to climb 9a after Josune Bereziartu, Charlotte Durif, and Sasha Digiulian.
