El hijo libre 8c by Iziar Martinez (16)

15 August 2021

Iziar Martinez, who last year did five 8c's, has done her first in 2021, El hijo libre in Rodellar. "This summer has been crazy. I have been competing in a lot of competitions. I just needed a little rest from all that, so I went to Rodellar and I didn't know what to try, and I saw this incredible line that I wanted to try last year and I thought it would be nice to give it a try."

In total, the 16-year-old has done 13 IFSC comps in 2021 including getting a bronze in a Euro Youth Boulder Cup. Next up is the Youth World Championship in Russia.
