" An extremely bouldery route which took 7 days this trip and 2 days last year ".
Sorry for the following bad photos (as usual, use is possible with link to this page from websites or credit to this site from printed magazines ) ... just to let you see the line and some move :-)
Estimated section by section grades:
after a 7a+/b boulder, there is an 8a+ boulder section ...
... then another 8a+/b boulder
The 3 bouldering problems could eventually be compared to something like a long 8c boulder.
The last really hard move is before the following foot-hook:
The first, old sequence for the lower crux and the following dynos:
After the 3 boulders there is a final 7c+ route section (about 7 meters):
A tricky move just before the anchor.
" Bearing in mind the effort, it could be 9b, but I am not sure at all.
Would have been definitely 9b if I hadn't figured out better sequence for the lower crux, as I had the sequence I had thought it would be a quick work and 9a+ but in the end I fell nine times in the higher crux...
Time will tell "
9b, the first "9bouldery" route in sport climbing history and the first 9b proposed by Adam.

The 15 mt route is not a link-up and was bolted in 1996 by visionary, generous and no chipping David and Carles Brascò (source: D. Brascò and N. Campillo guidebook).
