As reported here before, in August Nico Favresse and Adam Pustelnik made the first repeat of the Pou-brothers' Orbayu, a multi-pitch on Naranjo de Bulnes in the Picos de Europa, Spain.
Originally given 8c+/9a, Nico and Adam felt it was more like 8b+ or 8c.
It should be said the Pou-brothers, who have repeated many of the hardest multi-pitches around the world, still maintain their opinion about the grade.
Be it how it may, the repeaters praised the quality of the route and the vision of the Pous.
