While on a climbing trip to Mallorca, which mostly has been dedicated to deep water soloing, Caroline Ciavaldini ventured inland to sample the bolted climbs.

James Pearson: As time was short, we have both been onsight/flashing routes rather than working projects, which has allowed us to tick a whole load of super classic routes in all different styles. The highlight ascent of the trip was Caroline's onsight of Commando Madrid – the most famous 8b on the island. She fought hard, dug deep and stuck it out to the chains, with just a tiny scream or two to help her on her way.

This was Caroline's 6th 8b onsight.
