Picacho 9b FA by Jonathan Flor

Tuesday, 25 May

Jonathan Flor reports on Insta that he has done the FA of Picacho 9b in the Ali Baba cave in Rodellar. "...without a doubt, the hardest I have climbed in its grade in the cave." The 24-year-old has previously done the FA of Ali Hulk Sit Start Extension Total 9b in the cave. (c) Inga Patarcic

Pichacho starts with a squat start in the middle of the cave, which is an 8B+ boulder problem before traversing to the right joining the other 9b, Ali Hulk... The only link-up that is missing now in the cave is to combine the 8B+ start with another 8B boulder, doing a more direct and harder line in the cave, before tying in with a rope doing the extension total.
