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.
