Fifteen-year-old French climber Enzo Oddo has made the fourth ascent of Kevin Jorgeson's massive highball problem Ambrosia in Bishop, California, reports the Bishop Bouldering Blog

Ambrosia is Oddo's headiest send so far, a 60-foot-high line that climbs a granite boulder in Bishop, California's Buttermilks. The climb goes at V11 as a bouldering problem or in the 5.13/5.14 range if considered a free solo. Oddo reportedly worked out the upper moves on toprope before sending it on Monday.
