9a 2nd go by Patxi

As we all know by now, 9a isn't that big a deal anymore. For some... After what sounds like an at least mildly wet celebration after the Imst WC (nothing too fancy as it took place in the parking lot of the Imst Sportzentrum!), Patxi Usobiaga took advantage of the good weather and checked out the Nassereith crag, where he wanted to try Hades, 9a.
Adam Ondra was already there and had already done it, so he could provide beta. Good enough to enable Patxi to do it 2nd go (I suspect it's not all about good beta though).
Full story on Patxi's website, from where I also stole the photo.
