Another two 8A's by Mirko Caballero (12)

NUMBERS

22 January 2013

Mirko Caballero has during the last month done nine boulders 8A and harder. The last weekend, the twelve-year-old did two in Bishop including his first FA, Seven Spanish Angels full SDS in nice winter conditions. "Yes! So sick! Full Sit down start to Seven Spanish Angels. Start low down and right on a large left facing sloper/pinch about two feet off the ground, move straight up several moves on slopers and a pinch then bust a hard move left to the start of SSA. As for the grade, I feel that it is much harder than many 7C+ (V10)'s I've done, so I'm calling it soft 8A (V11). Nevertheless, so psyched for my hardest FA!! Yeee!!
