90 m 9a (8c+) by Josema Urrestarazu (51)

Sunday, 5 July

Josema Urrestarazu has done the fourth ascent of Ekaitz Maiz' 90-meter long Basapiztien Eremua 9a (8c+) in Etxauri. The 51-year-old did his first and only 9a in 2014 and he says he was not in it for the grade but for the height. Sometimes he took 15-meter falls. Last year he did an 8c+ and made the FA of several hard routes which he did not grade. It should be mentioned that the first repetitor Iban Larrida thought it was 8c or 8c+.
