Sasha got very close to doing it last time she was there back in March, but after falling close to the top, she decided to take a rest day. Then the weather turned bad and she wasn't given another chance. Until now.
According to a report on Big Up Productions' Facebook page, Sasha did it on her first go this trip, even though she by all likelihood was severely jet lagged. In total that means 6 days of effort went in to climbing the route.
*I just learned that the original name of the route "Era vella" ("old threshing floor" in
Catalan), is the name of Chris and Daila's home.
"Era bella" means "was beautiful" both in Catalan and Spanish, but has nothing to do with the name of this route.
