Pachamama 9a+ by Piotr Schab

Piotr Schab, who just did his first 9b, has done his eight 9a+, Pachamama in Oliana in just eight tries. "Probably the best sequence of moves I've done in past couple of years." (c) Marcin Szymkowski

The Pole is #2 in the 8a ranking game after Adam Ondra which he has been for almost two straight years.

Amazing! Another great ascent for this late bloomer! But maybe Panchamama should be downgraded since it has seen so many ascents during last years - surely this must mean that it is soft. Maybe the climbing media can help?

Six out of the seven guys who have recorded Pachamama say it is hard and Piotr did a 9b just two weeks ago. I think the media would call this a pretty hard 9a+. It will be hard to call Piotr a late bloomer but if it turns out that he climbs several 9c+' being 35 years old...
