Reported on Neil Mawson's twitter feed is an ascent by british climber Katy Whittaker of the long and pumpy China Crisis (8b+) at Oliana, Spain.
The route starts with a hard and bouldery section leading to a never-ending wall of small holds and technical climbing and tackles the left side of the impressive limestone sport cliff of Oliana.
Katy has long been one of the top women climbers in the UK. Well done Katy!
We hope to bring you more info on this ascent soon.
