Perpetuisima 9a by Loic Zehani

20 January 2023

Loic Zehani, who previously has sent 60 routes 8c+/9a and harder, has possibly done the first repeat of Perpetuisima (9a) in Sant Llorenç del Munt. "One of the first routes of this level in Spain by Dani Andrada in 1997. A quick approach, then a nice jump to a good hold. Another hard move to catch a good hold with a sloppe underling. After that, you have a nice bouldery section with a pocket and a big move to a very good hold. For finish in the classic Cadena perpetua (8c). Nice line. Dani graded this 8c+/9a but I think it depends on your height. Happy to climb again after some sessions in "Neanderthal" which is more and more wet."

In the picture, the 21-year-old does possibly the FA of El Ultima ordre y El mon al reves (9a) in Sant Miquel del Fai. "Long traverse left to right (48 mouves, more or less 8B+ traverse) + El mon al revés (8b). Very nice moves and big physical effort. Thanks, Matteo and Javi for the info at the crag. Very steep crag 💪💪💪."
