[VIDEO] Felipe Camargo on El Bon Combat, the first South American on a 9b route
The Brazilian on his hardest route16 December 2019
In April, the very strong Brazilian climber Felipe Camargo had climbed El Bon Combat, a Cova de Ocell route, Spain, graded 9b.
It was the first pitch of this grade for him and the first for a climber from South America as well as of course from Brazil.
A success obviously built with a lot of effort and preparation as this beautiful video by Red Bull shows.
Released in 2015 by the American star Chris Sharma, El Bon Combat had seen an initial rating of 9b +, then revised at 9b by Jakob Schubert who made the first repetition in 2018.
