Watch him projecting the route on "Reel Rock Tour 2010".
I had no expectations and wen I arrived at the loathsome reappoint crux, I didn’t think, just climbed and a few moments later I had the finishing jug in my hand. After so many times falling , I felt like I was in a dream. Its definitely one of my hardest routes, but the mental mountain I had to climb was really makes it stand out for me.

When he [Chris Sharma] first tried it he was using a much harder beta, and fell off that last section about 50 times. He eventually worked out an easier sequence and then sent it relatively quickly, but when you try something for so long it's hard to get a proper feel for things. I used that easier beta, too, and I'd say 9b fits perfectly.

Finally First round first minute fell!! After 3 days of rest due to rain and wetness, today, with a little bit of moisture, the belayed by the exceptional Alex [Megos] and rooting by Sara I managed to get the masterpiece freed by Chris Sharma and repeated by Adam Ondra and Alex Megos. Now first round also speaks a little Italian!
