Panorama 8c+/9a by Alex Garriga

Monday, 24 May

Alex Garriga has done Jorge Diaz-Rullo's Panorama giving it a personal 8c+/9a grade confirming other repeaters thoughts. Alex did the 22 meter route on his ninth try after falling four times on the last move. "It is a very strange route with a lot of kneebars and crimps. The boulder cruxes are all with very technical kneebars. If you don't feel comfortable in them, you are f-ed".

The 22-year-old has done six 9a+' the last year, out of which, three FA's and he is #2 in the 8a ranking game. The picture is from Garriga's latest Insta trying Dani Andrada's unrepeated Arrepentimiento 8c+ from 2008. (c) Alfonso Martinez
