14 October 2020
Verdasco, Flor e Martinez climb their project in the Spanish crags. 

Let’s start with the girl, Itziar Martinez. In Cuenca crag, she has climbed Duma cero, a solid 8c. In just six attempts, the 15 years old girl has climbed her project, started just as outdoor training. Despite the age, this is her fourth 8c. 

Talking about Sergio Verdasco, the 9a has came also for him. In Rodellar, he has sent Autoengano, a line with more than sixty moves in a huge overhang, opened by Dani Andrada. About his send, he says that it is a dream came true,a broken barrier, a source of motivation. The same route in a project also for the strong Alizée Dufraisse, who is really close to climb it. 

Last but not least, Jonatan Flor has added another 9th grade line in his huge curriculum. The route is Mangarbo, the grade is 9a/+ and the crag is Villanueva de Rosario. Together with his friend Palao, Jonny is one of the most active spanish climbers of 2020.
