Laura Rogora finished winter with a week of hard sends, often in only a few tries. She sent three 5.14bs, including Ercole 5.14b/c, La Morte 5.14b after three tries and Crazy Horse 5.14b on her second go.
After her send of La Morte, she wrote on Instagram, “Fantastic day in Pietrasecca with a great crew. I am so happy that i could send La Morte 8c on my third go. Climbing this piece of history has been awesome, the route is twice my age. It was bolted in 1987 by Andrea di Bari but had to wait 22 years before Alessandro Jolly Lamberti freed it.”

Adam Ondra has been recovering after pushing himself to attempt the second ascent of Lapsus 5.15b. The climber’s site 8a.nu reports that Ondra has since redpointed Fabelita R2 5.14d and onsighted Milenium 5.14b and Magin el Mage 5.14b.
“In total, the 24-year-old has recorded 81 routes onsight which can be compared with the runner-ups who have done like a handful,” noted 8a.nu.
It has been hard trip. Just when I arrived to Spain, I got sick and spent a few days in the bed. Since then I have been recovering, but I am not back in the shape where I would like to be (and was). Sad to be almost leaving with all my projects untouched, but they will not run away. Pic in "Directa Cornualles" 8c in Siurana, failed to onsight.
