In September 2019, Seb Bouin made the first ascent of La Rage D’Adam 5.15b/c in the Verdon, France. It took the top climber four years of projecting to send the powerful line.

The steep route is found at La Ramirole crag. “The route with its movements and its beauty is really impressive,” said Bouin, who had already repeated Mamichula 5.15b and Move 5.15b/c. Watch below.

Rock Combined Challenge : Step 1 ✅ "La Rage d'Adam" 9b/+ (5.15b/c) was the first step of my Rock Combined Challenge. It's probably the hardest French sport climbing route. It would be amazing if someone else come to try this route. Sharing the passion is one reason why I am doing this sport, and I would be so happy if this route can live again. The second step of my Rock Combined Challenge is to send the hardest French multi-pitch "Hossana" 8c max announced. Here the description of this multi-pitch : 8b/+ – 8b – 8b – 8c – 7b+. I will rest two days and try to send it Monday. So, have a nice weekend 😁!

C'est possiblement la voie sportive la plus dure de France. Il faudra néanmoins attendre une répétition pour confirmer cela. Je serai heureux de partager avec d'autres personnes à propos de cette voie afin de la voir vivre à nouveau. La seconde étape de mon challenge de combiné est d'enchaîner la grande voie la plus dure de France "Hossana" 8c max annoncé. Cette grande voie se décompose ainsi : 8b/+ – 8b – 8b – 8c – 7b+. Je vais me reposer deux jours (ce weekend) et essayer de l'enchaîner lundi. Passez un bon weekend alors 😁!
