Adam Ondra has made the first ascent of Mamichula at Oliana, which he calls his hardest 9b ever.
The route is a linkup of Papichulo, 9a+, and Pachamama, hard 9a+, where the actual linking section is the hardest and, according to Adam clocks in around 7C+/8A boulder. Hard wind and cold temps didn't make things any easier.
