8c Identification y placa (Identifacation y placas)

Another diamond which definitely got me out of my confort zone;) my wingspan wasn't enough to reach from the juggy pocket to the big hole so I had to be extra creative; luckily I found a bad undercling and a painful mono to stand up after a few unsuccessful goes trying the jump! Almost slipping of the next hold made it extra exciting but luckily the upper part was pretty relaxed, so exactly the other way around compared to Blondi;) 4th try

Still struggling to find the right words to describe what this means to me especially when you haven't even started to dream about it because it felt soo far away! What a crazyy too perfect to be true dream;) 5 more tries after the straight lines to clipp the chains of this combi beast with the help of low expectations, prime conditions and most important the very best crew around! Muchas gracias y'all for sharing this special moment:) more Infos on my Insta!

8b+ Crimptonite

#2go Only 5 star climbs in Oliana but this one still should get more attention, 30m resistency tricky moves on a slightly overhanging crimp carpet! Got heartbreakingly close on the onsight by missing one crimp super close to the top... even more frustrating when you've got told afterwards that you were cruising through all the hard part! But that's part of the game and for sure something to learn from:) including some bees attacking me into my hair...

Even if it ends in the middle of the wall, the moves were actually super nice! Close fight just before it got dark during the 5th day on; golden & happy hour:)

8c+ Mind control

#2go This kingline tops everything regarding next level rockquality and the beautiness of the moves! A blue limestone stripe featured with little bubbles and tufas only which are still pretty sharp after so much traffic... A name who suits perfectly like no other;) Only about controlling the mind all the way with the most risky section near the top: the famous dynamic crossmove where you constantly have to switch between fully commitment and holding the tension! Merci à Jan, Michi & Blondi:)

Crazy hard bouldery start and trying this one with 25 degrees in the sun didn't made it easier;) about 4 tries to find a perfect high heel!

#2go Just barely made it through the reachy lower part what made clipping the chains 2nd try already even more special, especially with 20m of pure kneebaring up this perfect structured tufa to the top:) soo cool to see how many different betas are working here: tall boys are jumping far and small ladies are pinching and heelhooking hard;) 8b+/c

Basically onsight but did 7c-start once first try before! Can it get even better!? This epic long tufa journey definitely takes some power, skin & time! But that's more than worth it because dancing up such a gem is unbelievably much fun:)

No words for how much this means to me! Feels so crazy good when everything luckily works out perfectly during that only ONE chance:) especially on such a tufakingline with tons of kneebars! The pump almost threw me off on the final slab... Thx Blondi for cheering me up to fulfill a little dream:)

8c+ Joe Blau

Seems like once the sending train is rolling, it's no that easy to stop again;) this was literally one of the most unexpected sends ever by still being pumped from the onsight an hour before but therefor I had the right commitment and flow in my movements! Mostly about getting through the resistency lower half but mentally it just starts there and isn't over till you survived the topslab! 3rd try in total but first real attempt from the ground after sticking the jump! What a surreal day!!!

8c El gran blau

#2go 8b+/c; another masterpiece of an endurance climb featured with some powerful kneebary bouldering after the big hole, bunching around on amazing little tufa pinches followed by the crux once again located at the last few meters! Gracias Moi, Bobby, Blondi & everybody else for the nice spirit:) psyched for the full line now but still a lot of adjustment needed! No wind today didn't made it easier;)

#2go Stoked about clipping the chains of another big classic 2nd try! Cold & windy condis but half way up, it got warmer than expected and I had some big struggles getting out of my pullover;) awesome good rockquality with a spicy slab right before the top! Thx Charlotte & Sam for giving me some beta-input for the lower part including some sneaky kneebars:) you gonna crush it soon!

8b La marroncita (Marroncita)

Another Oliana gem went down way quicker than expected without any warmup! Luckily the wind got stronger and the grip better the higher I got:) somehow managed to read all those tricky bouldery sequences just perfect that I was literally cruising up the climb with the pump kicking in while lowering down;) deserves more than 5 stars!

8c American Hustle (American Hastle)

#2go No way, did this really happened!? Quite untypical style for Oliana but a true kingline in the middle of the cliff! For me about 8 boulders mostly with tensiony shoulder- & underclingmoves seperated by good rests all the way to a spicy slab at 50m where I totally forgot my beta... windy condis, lots of cheering from the crew & low expectations made it possible:) one of the closest battles I ever had!

When the restday gets out off control and your other projects aren't free! Sending train at the cliff today with two other ascents at the same time; the Spanish guys were cheering soo loud that it even helped me passing the crux with thousands of dropknees! Perfect 5star bubble tufas in the upper part:)

#2go Worthwhile extension with lots of shoulder- & underclingmoves and a sneaky kneebar near the top of R2! Stupid reading mistake during the onsight as I haven't seen the most obvious crossover... not bad at all to shake up there twice;)
