Sweden's #1, Matilda Söderlund, has made a relatively quick repeat of Pati Noso, ~8c/+, in the El Pati sector at Siurana.

Previously, Matilda has mostly been known for being one of the very best onsight and flash climbers on the planet, and perhaps this is a hint about her focusing a bit more on redpointing from now on. It could also be that she is preparing to take onsight climbing to the next level... or maybe she's just having fun.

Since I left without sending Pati Noso last year, I though it would be interesting to give it a try and see how it would feel this time. I worked the moves and tried it three times in total yesterday. Everything felt a lot better than before and very possible. Nice to feel progression! Today I did it on my first go! It is definitely one of the coolest routes that I have ever done, and the hardest...

Now time to celebrate! HAPPY TIMES!
