Steve McClure has climbed the 35m limestone sport route of Blomu (F8c+) at Santa Linya, Spain.

Santa Linya is a huge limestone cave near Lleida in northern Spain and is home to many extremely hard routes including Neanderthal - the F9b super-route from Chris Sharma.

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.
