Apocalipsis de la Gioconda 9b (a+) by Jose Luis Palao

Tuesday, 30 June

Jose Luis Palao, who did the FA of Mona Lisa integral 9a+ in Rodellar two weeks ago, has done the first repeat of Jonathan Flor's 60 meters Apocalipsis de la Gioconda in Rodellar thinking it is also 9a+. Jose Luis bolted and cleaned the whole line during some 15 sessions and "Yes, my projects are always open." In total, he has bolted some 300 routes. (c) Jonathan Flor
