This spring, Magnus Midtbø spent a few weeks trying to make the 2nd ascent of Chris Sharma's Neanderthal, 9b, in the huge Santa Linya cave in Catalunya, Spain.
In the video, he says that the route could be described as a ~9a/+ up to a dyno, and then ~8b/+ to the top. This dyno proved very much to be the redpoint crux for Magnus. He fell a total of 26 times there, 6-7 of which he was very close to nailing it.
In the end, he had to return home to Norway when the conditions took a turn for the worse, but not before he went to Rodellar, where he onsighted Cosi fan tutte, 8c+.
Magnus will return to Santa Linya in November to finish the job.
His clothes look super high tech by the way, must be some fabric from outer space...
