Jernej Kruder continues his good form and has now repeated Chris Sharma's Catalan Witness the fitness, ~8C, as well as Bi herri, barokka bat, 9a, both at Cova del ocell near Barcelona.

After falling off the relatively easy end the day before, he came back for revenge and got shot down three times after the crux move. Without any pressure and with a very tired body, I gave it another go. Again, I stuck the hardest move, and somehow found just enough of aggression to pull out every piece of energy I had left, to finish this 22 moves boulder line. It was unbelievable!

Regarding Bi herri, barokka bat, Jernej's was the 3rd ascent. He says the route is very technical, which is normally not his absolute strength but fortunately the crux is three moves in a roof. This is then followed by techy climbing to the top.
