Third 9b for Sachi Amma thanks to Stoking the Fire ascent at Santa Linya
Spain still gives great success to the Japanese stainless27 March 2019
Return to 9b for the Japanese Sachi Amma who closes Stoking the Fire in Santa Linya.
The project had been suspended since last December when, during one of his many trips to the Iberian Peninsula, he failed to reach the chain but now Sachi Amma is the fourth climber to complete the ascent of Stoking the Fire, 9b route at the Cova Gran di Santa Linya. This is the third one of a similar grade for the very strong world champion who in 2015 landed at 9b with Fight or Flight to Oliana while in March 2018 he released Soul Mate in Japan, the way he proposed this difficulty.
As for Stocking, this is the first ascent of 2019. The previous climbs took place thanks to Jakob Schubert last year, to Adam Ondra in 2016 and Chris Sharma in 2013, the year of the FA.
