Martinez reaches 9a+!

Lucien climbs Papichulo

05 April 2022
Lucien Martinez has climbed Papichulo, 9a +.

Great result for the good Lucien Martinez, who after ten 9as reaches the first 9a+. The chief editor of the French magazine Grimper has completed the project on one of his greatest Nemeses, a very famous pitch in Oliana.

After several years of sporadic attempts, Lucien finally found the right amount of training and showed up in Spain really motivated. Just think that, to train, he used to train on fifteen routes between 7c and 8a in just three or four hours in the gym! Motivated from his excellent fitness, Lucien conquered his first 9a+ climbing Papichulo, Oliana's great classic. With his experience on grade 9, Martinez considers Papichulo a "low end 9a+" (the new way of saying soft), but certainly tougher than all 9a's so far.
