Sharma climbs new 9a+

Jun 2: Sharma climbs new 9a+ by 8a.nu From 8a.nu: Daila Ojeda & Chris Sharma decided to go climbing in Oliana in spite of the rain and they got their reward; Daila sent Marroncita, 8b+ while Sharma did the FA of his own Papichulo, 9a+. Dani Andrada describes this last route as 4 bolts of 8b, a no-hands rest, and then all endurance until the anchor at 45 metres. Another hard first ascent for Chris Sharma and an inspirational female repeat for Daila Ojeda. More info and photo on the 8a.nu site.
