Switzerland's Nina Caprez keeps delivering in Spain. In the Raco de finestra sector at Margalef, she has repeated Aitzol, 8c (or there about).
Nina told Kairn she thinks the very route's very powerful and athletic crux makes it a rather tough tick for most women and she is very happy she could do it.
She needed only three tries though and says it's by no means hard for the grade.
That it's only 8a, as Frenchman Rémy Bergasse, not entirely without irony, suggests, is not very likely. Rémy compares it to his benchmark 8a+, La Boule, and finds it easier. Grades eh...
Here is video of Nina's repeat of Mind control, 8c+, at Oliana:
