Nacho Sanchez sends his hardest project
FA of Daños con-laterales, 8C+11 April 2022
The Spanish boulderer climbs the hardest line in the country
For over 10 years Nacho Sanchez proved to be the strongest and most creative boulderer in Spain!
Originally from Murcia, Nacho has opened over the years a series of boulders that are references of extreme difficulty in the Iberian Peninsula, with a high number of 8C and more ... In 2011, he brought the 8C to Spain with Entropia, a boulder problem in the Castillo de Bayuela area. Then, at the end of 2014, the FA of Crisis: an extremely powerful line on a conglomerate roof in Crevillente, then repeated only by Jonatan Flor and Beto Rocasolano. But these are just some of the many first ascents he has achieved in years of activity always at the highest level, to which are then added the repetitions of other extreme testpieces such as Juneru, El Indomable etc.
Sanchez's last appearance dates back to October, with the first ascent of El Muro Sit, 8C, at La Collada de Quiros but now he is back with a bomb: indeed, he announced on Instagram that he had climbed his main project of the recent years ! A line always steeply overhanging located in Fortuna, Murcia and which he himself describes as "not particularly captivating", although he later confesses that it is the boulder that has motivated him the most for a long time. The name chosen is Daños con-laterales, a problem that Nacho considers the most difficult and the one that has occupied him the most in his career, hence the proposal of 8C+.
If confirmed by future repeaters, this new line could therefore be the hardest in Spain.
