Las meninas 9a (+) by Gonzalo Larrocha

Monday, 24 May

Gonzalo Larrocha has done Las Meninas 9a (+) in Rodellar. The 36-year-old bolted it one year ago and Jorge Diaz-Rullo did the FA.

"It is a very steep route with a focus on crimps. I was working on it, during the autumn, now I send it on the fifth day. It is over 30m long but the harder section finish at 20m.

After I clipped the first anchor, I tried to continue but fell two quick draws before the second anchor. I was frustrated but at the same time really happy. Now, I will try some days more to link this 50 meters route. The second pitch is 8b+ (more or less). But it is a really technical roof, where you feel that your legs are going to explode.”
