Steve McClure has climbed the 35m limestone sport route of Blomu (F8c+) at Santa Linya, Spain.
Steve mentioned his quick tick of the F8c+ in the recent interview he gave for UKClimbing.com (McClure Interview).
Steve climbed the route on his third day, taking an early start to get cold conditions. The heat had thwarted his efforts on his second day.
