Dani Andrada, 45, continues "A Muerte"

Wednesday, 11 November

Dani Andrada reports on Insta that he during 16 days in Villanueva del Rosario did 16 routes 8a and harder including Malenun 8c+/9a, as well as bolting and opening some new routes. Ephemerides is a new 75-meter project in the 9th degree where he opened an easier 8c/+ variant. It is in the same sector as Chilam Balam but with 60 meters overhang, it just might be one of the biggest overhang route in the world. At the same time, there is possible to do a 100 metres overhanging route there just by doing another start! It took the 45-year-old two days just to bolt and the project grade is 9a+ or even 9b.

Dani is famous for being the pioneer exploring and putting up many 9a and harder routes in Santa Linya, Siurana andRodellar, making this area the epicentre of hardcore climbing in the world. Currently, the "A Muerte" legend lives near Siurana but most of the time he is actually road-tripping is his big camper. In total, he has done 4 400+ routes 8a and harder out of which some 1 600 onsight and possibly 1 800 FAs, out of which 900 he has bolted himself! Counting just 8c to 9a+/9b he has done 485. Interestingly, he has put up two 9b's in the Ali Baba cave in Rodellar but he thinks, with knee pads, both of they are max 9a+ in their current state.

Systematic Devaluing ethics

Debate/Jens: In trad climbing you are not allowed to have the gear or quickdraws in place and it was also like this in the beginning of the sport climbing era. Some ten years ago, you still had to place the draws if you were going to claim an onsight. The devaluation of ethics have continued and now…

Daniel said that it was extremely frustrating to hear the spectators …
