Catalunya Report – F8c onsight, F9a new route

by Pete O´Donovan After poor early-Autumn weather, conditions are finally improving in Catalunya, heralding a flurry of important ascents over recent days. Dani Andrada climbing as strongly as ever, returned to his beloved Santa Linya, where he established  ´Analogica Natural (extension)´ (9a) on the very steep rock to the right of ´Digital System´ (8c). Meanwhile, the awesome walls of Oliana (sector deportivo-Rumbau) played host to one of the most impressive weekend´s climbing ever, as Chris Sharma on-sighted routes graded 8b+/8c and 8c on consecutive days. The action started on Saturday morning, when our own Steve McClure, after very little preparation the day before, made a fine ascent (possibly the 4th) of ´Humildes pa Casa´ (8c).
