After some time more or less off from climbing, one of the world's leading allrounders, Iker Pou, has once again visited Margalef in the Catalunya region of Spain, one of his favourite sport climbing spots.
He had a great time there with good friends, putting up some new routes, but also found some time for harder stuff. The highlights were a repeat of La Ley Innata, 8c+/9a, in the Laboratory sector, and a flash of Adits al limit, 8b+, but he also did Oryana, 8c, Speed baybe, 8b+, and another unknown route with the same grade.
Below is a video of Ramon Julian Puigblanque cruising La ley innata:
