Alex climbed the route without a rope, onsight and commented after his ascent:
"There were a few chalked holds that I didn't use, they looked like they weren't held on by enough for me to trust."
The following day Alex visited the world famous Spanish sport cliff of Oliana, where he climbed two 8bs, an 8a+ and an 8a in a day.
Alex is well known for his hard ropeless climbs and has made several ground breaking solos in America. Several years ago he also made a short trip to the Peak District where he soloed Gaia (E8) and London Wall (E5) as well as climbing lots of other hard routes with a rope.
