Sport climbing in France: Is Sébastien Bouin climbing the next 9c?

29-year-old French sport climber Sébastien Bouin has been quietly working his way through the elite grades, culminating in his attempt to establish a long pitch out an overhanging cave in the Verdon Gorge of France. His proposed line is so futuristic, the moves so improbable, that if Sébastien can put it all together it may be the most difficult route ever climbed.
