Daila Ojeda & Chris Sharma decided to go climbing in Oliana in spite of the rain and they got their reward; Daila sent Marroncita, 8b+ while Sharma did the FA of his own Papichulo, 9a+. Dani Andrada describes this last route as 4 bolts of 8b, a no-hands rest, and then all endurance until the anchor at 45 metres.
Another hard first ascent for Chris Sharma and an inspirational female repeat for Daila Ojeda.
