6/16/11 - 16-year-old Enzo Oddo has made the first ascent of La moustache qui fâche (5.15a) at Entraygues, France. Yann Ghesquier bolted this line, which sits left of Toni Lamiche's San ku Kaï (5.14d).

Oddo describes the climb as having three hard bouldery sections (20 moves) without rests. He proposed 5.15a because it was harder for him than Condé de choc and San ku Kaï, other routes at the cliff which he had already climbed.

This makes Oddo's third 5.15 so far. In May, he repeated Aubade Direct (5.14d/15a) at Sainte Victoire, France, and last year, he redpointed Chris Sharma's Realization (aka Biographie) in August.

Date of ascent: June 15, 2011
