8c+, 8c+ (9a) and 9a by Gonzalo Larrocha (36)

Sunday, 4 October

Gonzalo Larrocha has had a productive week in Rodellar having done one 8c+ and two 9a's; Mona lisa L1 and La menina sixtina R2. The latter he personally think it is 8c+.

"I did "La menina sixtina" one week ago. It is a combination of La menina and la capilla sixtina. Last Tuesday I sent "Mona Lisa" which cost me a lot of tries in June, but now I only made six more. It was strange because on Sunday I could not do the hard crux. Finally on Wednesday I sent "Se me fue la Pinza" a new 8c+ bolted by Dani Andrada in June and which has been done by Jonatan Flor and Dani. It's a strange route where you need to manage the knee bars very well."
