Was this reported on here? If so please delete, otherwise well done! I just found this thread on 8a:

2011-10-06 00:00:00
Monique Forestier has done Tom et je ris 8b+ in Verdon which is a 60m tufa route. Prior to having a baby three years ago, she did four 8b+ in Blue Mountains.

Robbie Phillips says: "The whole aspect of this climb with its limited time to be climbed (between 7am 2pm), massive walk in, ab in approach to start of route, hanging belay, mega long run-outs, technical nature of the climb and difficulty of working the route...". (c) her husband Simon Carter, "Certainly one of the most stunning lines I've ever seen..." Check out his new Coffe Table Book.

That's what I call a supporting wife! Monique sends an 8b+ just in time for a news release of it promoting Simon's new book. :) Awesome!

but because it's such a sh*thouse website you can't link the individual pages.

Looks like a pinchfest but probly with techno footwork, and the climber looks like they got offline.
if not then why the rope way off to the right lower down?

It is cool, but not as cool as Andrew's Bulge at Banger.

Obviously she is hanging onto a tufa (brown line-thing in her hands) which would be subtantial holds/climbing line

It's definitely one of the coolest lines and climbs I've ever seen.

I've added a little report and a few pics of Monique on this to my web site now: http://www.onsight.com.au/2011/10/tom-et-je-ris/

The route follows the main tufa but the actual climbing starts up a tufa on the right and later incorporates a tufa on the left.
