Devers Royal 8c+/9a by Illya Bakhmet-Smolenskyi

Friday, 26 June

Illya Bakhmet-Smolenskyi, who did the FA of Shades of Grey 8c+ in Geyik bayiri last month, shown in the video, has done Devers Royal 8c+ or 9a. "Originally, the line was an 8c, after a couple of years a huge jug was torn out from the first crux and it turned to be 8c+, and then some crimps throughout the whole route were also broken. I would say it's a 9a, but since the huge rest cave from Ikarus is open, it's more likely an 8c+. For sure the hardest route in Geyik. Waited two months for the "cold" conditions in summer."
