It was given 8C+ by Alberto, but Rubén now suggests it's probably more like solid 8C, which would mean Spain still awaits its first ~8C+ boulder. But then again, he also says that he doesn't know what 8C+ is, so who knows?
The problem follows a roof crack, requring extreme body tension, to a powerful move over the lip.
Rubén just came back from a finger injury, but it doesn't seem to have weakened him much... This was his 2nd ~8C boulder, not counting Misti which, at least grade wise must be considered a traverse.
