Sharma onsights F8b+ First Ascent

Victor Fernández reports in his blog that he's opened a brand new 8b+ route in Oliana called T1 - "Full Equipe":

"...Right after I cleaned it with the help of Daniel Andrada; Chris Sharma decided to have a go "a muerte" (to the death) and succeeded getting the FA on-sight."

Oliana is in Catalunya, Spain and was recently described by Dave Graham:

"A huge pseudo-Biographie wall, with tons of futuristic lines to bolt, overhanging 150 feet with pure tufas, melting down from the top"
