Garnbret: 8c onsight!

Janja rewrite the history

03 November 2021
Janja Garnbret is the first woman ever to onsight an 8c route.

After the gold medal at the Olympics, we are talking about Janja Garnbret again. She has written again another page of sport climbing history, becoming the first woman ever to onsight a 8c route. Moved to Oliana for a climbing holiday, she has climbed Fish Eye, the iconic 8c.

The send is so epic. This route is a masterpiece by Chris Sharma, 50 meters long and with the crux in the last part. Climbing it, Janja understood that she was trying with the wrong beta, so she climbed back to the rest and then, with the right method, she climbed until the anchor . Just one girl climbed an 8c before her, Charlotte Durif, but the route have been downgraded. With a lot of repetitions and no downgrades until now, we are pretty sure that this one will be the first performance on this level for ever. The pink onsight level was stationary from early 2000, when Josune Bereziartu onsighted the first 8b+ ever.
