Ramon Julian Puigblanque has onsighted Chris Sharma's Fish eye, 8c, at Oliana, Spain.
What makes Ramonet's onsight extra impressive is the fact that he had to negotiate some wet patches on his way up this long route. The style is characterized by pumpy climbing between evenly spaced crux passages, the hardest of which comes after 30m or so, but with the red-point crux, for most, at around the 45m point, only five meters from the top.
The route has been onsighted once before, by Klemen Becan from Slovenia.
