Six sessions needed for Rogora taking down Erebor 9b/+

Wednesday, 6 October

Laura Rogora tried Erebor 9b/+ for two days in March and already on the first day she did all the moves. Returning from the World Championship in Russia, where she got the bronze, the 20-year-old needed only four more days for sending it, doing three attempts per session. Source: PlanetMountain

Noteworthy is that FA Stefano Ghisolfi projected it for some 20 days before sending it, including falling more than ten times on the last moves. As can be seen, comparing it with the Ghisolfi video, they used different beta in many sequences. Ghisolfi has commented on youtube saying that she used some "microscopical holds" for the jump, which was smaller than the tickmarks put on them.
