El camino de las flores R-2 OS by Dani Fuertes (41)

Wednesday, 12 January

Daniel Fuertes has set a great onsight personal best at age 41 with El camino de las flores R-2 (8c) in L'Ocaive. Interesting is that the last 18 months have been his best ever including Ali Hulk sit start extension total (9b) and Patanics (9a+).

"It was a wonderful day of Reyes!!! It was a hard mentally fight because the route has a long technical sequence. I’m very happy, it was one of my dreams 🤗 Previously, I have done some 8b+ onsight and very close to some 8c, but the latter without success 🤷‍♂️ Now, I hope to repeat the goal!! Jaja 😂🙏"

The 50-meter route and 15-meter overhang route was bolted by Pedro Navas and it is divided into two parts. The first physical part is 8a+ and then the second part is more technical, including the most difficult cruxes.

It should be mentioned that during the last years, there has actually been a decline of hard male onsights. During the last four years, only a dozen have onsighted 8c or harder. Adam Ondra has onsighted 86 routes 8c and harder and contender for being runner-up is Piotr Schab with eleven 8c onsights.

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…
