New grade achieved for Anak Verhoeven: 8c+
Sick after Imst where she finished 4th, Anak Verhoeven went to the Gorges du Loup in France to recover. A trip in southern France that was more than productive for her since she climbed three 8c and her first 8c+ : Ultimate Sacrifice!
The Gorges du Loup suit very well competition climbers such as Anak. You can find steep routes requiring power and resistance. A perfect training crag. It's in this spot that Muriel Sarkany made her best outdoor performance ever last November : Punt-X, the first 9a for a woman in Belgium. We can hope Anak will follow the same path. Her results outdoors and on competitions show that it could be quite quick :
8c+ Ultimate Sacrifice
8c Last Soul Sacrifice
8c Qoussai, les maux de la fin
8c Hot Chili X
8b+ New power Sacrifice
8b New power Generation
8b Soul Sacrifice

Last weekend, it is with a 7th place in Kranj that Anak Verhoeven finishes her first adults international season. Being very regular, the Belgian finishes like she started. With a place in the final. Anak got a 4th place in the general ranking.
Loic Timmermans ends in a perfect way his youth career. He has been on so many podium since he is a young kid and got this morning his last medal. During the Youth World Championship that took place in Nouméa, the Belgian ended in silver in Junior.
