Estado Critico 9a by Victor Guillermin (16)

Friday, 14 January

Victor Guillermin reports on Insta that he has done Estado critico (9a) in Siurana. The 16-year-old has previoulsy done two 8c+ and in 2020 he was #2 in a Euro Youth Cup.

"2021 was definitively a good year because I managed to climb "Le Bronx" (the first french 8c+) after weeks of work and now "Estado Critico"! To send this route, it was quite fast, because it suits me a lot, a long and pumpy route... So the first day, I checked the moves and after three days struggling on the upper part, I finally climbed this crazy line in my 9th try. It was an indescribable feeling to top it! And now 2022 begin with a lot of projects... and training ; )".
