Third ascent of Crisis 8C/+ by Alberto Rocasolano

Spanish boulderer Alberto Rocasolano’s impressive performance on rock continues, he has just repeated one of Spain’s hardest lines: Crisis, graded 8C/+ (V15/16), in Crevillente, Spain.

The key is the endurance. The last moves are on small crimps and you are already worn down because to get there you have a quite physical roof with good holds.

Just a few weeks ago, in the same cave, Rocasolano established a line combining part of Immsonmio (8C | V15) and part of Crisis, grading it 8B+/C.

Rocasolano is one of Spain’s most accomplished boulderers, he has climbed many of the hardest lines in the country and established its first 8C+ | V16 proposal.

Crisis, opened by Nacho Sánchez in 2014, was recently repeated by Jonatan Flor.
