Basque allround master Iker Pou has been to Mallorca where he onsighted better than ever before, crowning it all with an onsight of Guiris go home, 8c, his first of the grade.

In total, he did one 8c, one 8b+/c, three 8b+'s and more than ten 8b's onsight.

I asked him if there is any particular reason why he was focusing on onsighting. Some multi pitch he wanted to try onsighting perhaps?

I'm very happy and enjoying a lot climbing onsight. I don't have any special reason.
I have a multi pitch route that I opened with my brother last year and we want to free....but just climbing.

Vamos a muerte!!!!!

Iker rose to fame when he made the 3rd ascent of Action directe in june 2000 and has since redpointed several 9a+'s, bouldered 8B+'s and repeated some of the hardest multi pitches around the world.
