Widowmaker 9a by Loic Zehani

Loic Zehani has done the third repeat of Widowmaker (9a) in Margalef, in just two tries. Vincent Palau bolted the five-star route and then Ramon Julian did the FA in 2015. "Another magnificent route from Margalef (purgatory). A fast approach and then a big overhang with pockets but not only. Some dynamics moves. Winter conditions this morning before the rain (1° and cloudy). Without forgetting the 10 meters between the last point and the belay it's not hard but without chalk, it was really scary. 1 try yesterday and 1 today." (c) Emile Pino
