has made the 2nd ascent of Il Domani
, 9a, at Baltzola, a mega resistance route according to him. Quite different to his previous two 9a-range 2nd ascents, Demencia senil
and Victimas Pérez
. Obviously this was a challenge for him, as it doesn't really suit him that well.
The all natural ~70 move route was opened by Patxi Usobiaga in 2003 and is described by Iker as an 8b+ into a 7C+ crux, followed by an 8a. He also says he found a rest Patxi didn't use and that he thinks the route, by using this, goes from hard
