White Zombie 8c onsight by Jorge Diaz-Rullo

Friday, 4 September

Jorge Diaz-Rullo has done his second 8c onsight, White Zombie in Baltzola, on his third day on. The super steep route is mentioned in the record books for the first-ever 8c onsight, performed by Yuji Hirayama back in 2004. It should, however, be mentioned that later some have given it 8b+ and Jorge comments on Insta, "But I really have to say that now it's a little easier with kneepads than it was before 🤔 although I did not see many of them 😅".

During the last month, the 20-year-old has done six routes 9a to 9b and he is getting superior in the 8a ranking game. Photographer, Carlos Padilla has followed many of his hardest ascents and comments,

"He is undoubtedly one of the best climbers of the moment, not only because of the level he does but also because of the number of hard routes that he is able to send in a few sessions and without rest. Motivation is without a doubt one of his strengths, he never gives up. He also has an extraordinary capacity for recovery that allows him to climb many days in a row, always at the highest level. It continues to amaze me the ability to do his maximum level, several times a day, several days in a row. He has an exceptional assimilation capacity. He has certainly not peaked. He seems for us like a real X-Man...😜"
