Nacho Sánchez, who recently placed 2nd after Guillaume Glairon-Mondet in the Tierra Boulder Battle in Stockholm, beating Nalle Hukkataival into 3rd spot, has made his 2nd 8C first ascent, Insomnio in the Cova de la Gota at Crevillente, Spain.
According to Nacho, the meat of the problem is the first 6 moves, where the 5th is the hardest and the 6th a somewhat random dynamic move.
He has been working the conglomerate roof on and off for one and a half year, slowly piecing it together move by move.
It looks absolutely nails and suits Nacho's style perfectly.
Here's the video.
