Tom Bolger has confirmed his return to form following his recent back injury​, as after climbing Era Vella, 9a, at Margalef (UKC News Report) he has just climbed another 9a with Seleccio Natural at Santa Linya and flashed Migranya, 8b at Siurana.

Seleccio Natural is a massive 40m 9a that climbs through the impressive cave at Santa Linya near Lleida in Catalunya. Tom had been trying the route before his injury, but managed it in just three sessions this time round, commenting on the route he said:

"I had been trying this route when I injured my back, it was awesome to get back on it and get it done."

Further confirming that Tom is back to fitness, he managed a flash of another 8b with the steep and bouldery Migranya at Siurana.
