Cristian Brenna, making the most of the two-month break in the competition calendar, spent his holiday in Cuenca, Spain. Apart from onsighting numerous 8a’s and "Goliath"8a+, (soloed by Dani Andrada!), he also managed to onsight the steep stamina testpiece "Public Enemy" 8b. In addition, he almost repeated Elie Chevieux's feat of onsighting 8b+, but unfortunatley he didn’t see an important three finger edge on "Terapia de Grito" 8b+, which he redpointed an hour after his narrow miss. On his return from Spain he and his girlfriend stopped off in the Gorges du Tarn where he added another 8a and an unknown 8b to his tally of hard onsights.
So far, the only person to have onsighted an 8b+ remains the Swiss Elie Chevieux.


Christian Brenna’s Cuenca hitlist:
- Terapia de grito 8b+ (1st redpoint)
- Public Enemy 8b (o.s.)
- Goliath 8a+ (o.s.)
- Chuli cocinero 8a+ (1st redpoint)
- El monstruo de la galletas 8a (o.s.)
- Apesar de su color 8a (o.s.)
- Maciste 8a (o.s.)
- Pulidor de Estrellas 8a (o.s.)
- Cabe esperar 8a (1st redpoint)
