Seb Bouin has made the second ascent of Chris Sharma's Tierra Negra, ~9a/+ at Margalef, Spain.
Chris made the first ascent in October last year, commenting that the route is ... a line I bolted a couple of years ago just to the right of "Era Vella". It's super beautiful but since I always have a long line of projects I had never gotten around to sending it."
After ten sessions, Seb was able to repeat this very fingery line. This marks his come back to hard routes after a finger injury that he sustained early this spring. Not a bad come back either.
