Domen Skofic has repeated Chris Sharma's Papichulo, 9a+, at Oliana, Spain.

After a World Cup season which must be considered his definite break through into the world's elite, consistently placing in the top-5, Domen, along with some of his team mates, took a break from plastic to sample some real rock in Spain.

After ten attempts spread over five days, he managed to repeat Papichulo, a route first climbed by Chris Sharma back in 2008. It has since been repeated by Adam Ondra, Jakob Schubert, Ramon Julian Puigblanque and Sachi Amma i.e Domen is in good company.

UPDATE: Mina Markovic has now repeated Mind control, 8c/+, and Domen has flashed it!

There is still plenty of time left for Domen and the rest, so most likely more to come...
