José Luis Palao opens La Catedral del Mal, new 9a in Murcia
Another first ascent for “Primo” in southern Spain17 February 2020
José Luis Palao made the first ascent of La Catedral del Mal in Murcia, a pitch which he estimates to be a new 9a.
In Murcia, a city in the south-east of Spain, José Luis Palao called "Primo" has released La Catedral del Mal, a 9a route at the Sanctuary which opens 2020 with the first route of 9.
Here Primo also climbed La Catedral 8c+ e La Catedral del Suci 8c+/9a but there are still the variants La Catedral pa la Hipoxia R2 and La Catedral de los Narcos which could blow the hardest routes on the cliff.
