Geila Macia, tredici anni e 8c

Primo 8c per la spagnola

18 January 2022
Geila Macia Martin has climbed La Fabelita, 8c.

With very few women in the world going beyond grade 8th, Geila Macia Martin's performance bodes well for a bright future in the Olympus of climbing. After numerous routes of eighth grade in 2021, his 2022 definitely starts with a bang.

In the Santa Linya crag, one of the Spanish capitals of sport climbing, Geila reached grade 8c, climbing a route called La Fabelita. At the beginning of the project, Geila tells on his social channels that he immediately understood that the game was getting serious and little energy would not be enough to be able to gain all the resistance that such a shot requires. However, she did not allow herself to be discouraged and achieved her goal, writing her name higher and higher among not only Spanish but also international talents.

With her 14th birthday coming in March, Geila is one of the youngest climbers in the world to have climbed an 8c pitch.
