De Battre Mon Coeur s'est Arrêt 9a Lead | worked 15th Oct 2023

First re-ascent after some holds broke.

About 1 minute after sending, I walked back to the base of the route through the river as always. While recollecting the send in my mind, I somehow passed through another, deeper part than usual, slipped on slimy stones and fell in the water 💦😆 – along with my climbing shoes, chalkbag, harness, kneepads... everything. 😅 🚿 Pretty good timing haha. Shouldn’t have happened any earlier. 🤣 [1]
