Watch Patxi Usobiaga Send Pachamama 5.15a/b

Spanish climber Patxi Usobiaga sent Pachamama 5.15a/b back in November of 2017.

Usobiaga started climbing in Atxarte when he was 10 years old. When he was 15, he climbed his first 5.13b called ConanDax Librarian.

In 2000, he started competing at the Lead Climbing World Cup and in 2003 he won in Edinburgh.

In 2006 and 2007, he was first overall in the Lead World Cup. In June 2010, he was in a car accident that forced him to retire from comp climbing.

He started climbing again a few years ago and has now climbed four 5.15s, including Pachamama, La novena enmienda, La Rambla and Realization.

Watch him send Pachamama below and give Adam Ondra a run for his money in the “screaming very loudly” department.
