As reported, Chris Sharma has managed to make the first ascent of Golpe de Estado in the El Pati-sector of Siurana, Spain; a possible new 9b.
Golpe De Estado
Chris told Björn Pohl today:
"I'm still not totally sure on the grade, but it is comparable in some ways to Jumbo Love except the bottom is probably harder and the top a bit easier and less overhanging. I'll have to try some other routes to compare a bit more before I'm sure about the grade."
Josh Lowell from Big Up Productions just got in touch with us:
"We just posted the segment of Chris working on Golpe De Estado from Dosage V. It's on our site as a free clip so people can check out what the climbing is like now that he's done it. Would be great if you guys want to link over. We also have a new bouldering clip we just posted that people might enjoy, called Tis The Season. Check em both out in the Clips section. "
