2nd Adam Ondra, 2010/03/13, after a broken hold Chris used.

"Out of shape" because of flu and stomach ache and injury, Adam need 29 tries during 14 days (4 before tendon injury) with strong wind, "some days only go when I found out it is just too windy to climb at 6th bolt".


" I do not say it is hard 9b after breaking the hold, but 100% it is 9b now (a bit harder than Marina)."

1) Direct and bouldery start (9a/+)

3) Estado critico (originally 8c+/9a, with an hold C. Sharma used, now broken, so actually 9a)

After his F.A. Chris was unsure about the grade, thinking it's most probably 9b and the route harder than many 9a+s he had climbed:
" I'm still not totally sure on the grade, but it is comparable in some ways to 'Jumbo love' except the bottom is probably harder and the top a bit easier and less overhanging. I'll have to try some other routes to compare a bit more before I'm sure about the grade. " Chris Sharma

Chris bolted the line in november 2007 and worked it in winter 2007.
Success eluded him until an intense 6 days spell resulted in the redpoint reported by Daila Ojeda.

27cragsclimbervoice8a and many others are amazing sites, but sometimes, expecially if you worked a lot to envision, bolt, clean routes or boulders, you want to monetize a little your efforts.

9b can help you in this aim.


As you can see here, in 9b there are many " topo groups ".


You can add a discussion in every "topo group".

In your discussion you can edit and publish your own climbing topoguide, as a "paywall", a "destination page", requiring climbers their payment by credit card or paypal to access and read, even on SMARTPHONES (iphones, android phones, ...)


After having paid, climbers can see, save and print your climbing topoguide.


In this discussion you can add:


1) PHOTOS regarding one specific SECTOR (of routes or bouldering, dws lines)


a) "PHOTO topo":

It's very easy to edit a photo topo:

- upload a photo of a rock in a topo group discussion
