La Planta de Shiva, 9b, by Adam Ondra Video

© Bar Barb

9b's are coming thick and fast this spring, it would seem it's the new "black"...
Adam Ondra has now made the FA of La planta de Shiva at Villanueva del Rosario, the same crag near Malaga which is also home to Chilam Balam.

Not many details as of now, but apparently Adam has joined two pitches together, the first of which is an 8c and the 2nd a lot harder, to create this 45m route. Almost a boulder compared to its tall neighbour.

You aware 'Escalada deportiva' is not the name of the climb, but Spanish for 'Sport climbing'?
