8b+ OS' but no 9b by Magnus Midtbø

Magnus Midtbø has onsighted two 8b+', El Percal in Tres Ponts and Guilty in Sant Llorenç de Montgai. His goal with the trip was to do the first repeat of Sharma's Neanderthal, 9b in Santa Linya. He linked it in two goes and was only stopped by some wet holds. Now it is about time to focus on the competitions. I plan to do all the WC's this year. I also plan to go to Flatanger and to some other places in Norway where I have some projects. So I have plenty to do :) His training video has been watched 528 000 times in just over six months.

A new shape of cam and new forged side plates result in a device which is easy to place and more adaptable - as well as all the common Ropeman uses. Designed with the next generation of super skinny alpine ropes in mind and also noting the next generation of uses that the current Ropeman were used for the Ropeman 3 takes a big leap forward. Features - Alloy cam 7075 T6, 3 Sigma rated, Rope diameter 9-11mm. CE EN567, UIAA 126. New set available with Synergy Keylock Screwgate. See more here: http://bit.ly/IbkE7G
