Mrazek onsights Pata negra 8c!

Tomas Mrazek becomes the second person in the world to onsight an 8c - Pata negra at Rodellar, Spain.

Good news, better late than never! In mid-August Tomas Mrazek from the Czech Republic became the second person in the world to onsight an 8c - Pata negra at Rodellar, Spain.

The authentic on-sighting machine (five 8b+ and thirteen 8b's this year alone!) climbed the line on his first ever visit to the crag, warming up on a 7a+ and a 7c+ before successfully launching into the 40m endurance fest.

Mrazek, who placed 3rd at this year's Rock Master is now the second person to have on-sighted an 8c, after Yuji Hirayama's impressive OS of "White Zombie" at the Baltzola Cave, Spain in October 2004.

During the Rodellar holiday, Mrazek's girlfriend Helena Lipenska from the Czech Republic completed her first ever 7c+ on-sight, "Made in Mascun".

Congratulations to both of them!
