Aleksandra Taistra climbing Mind Control at Oliana

The video of Aleksandra Taistra interpreting Mind Control at Oliana in Spain

What's the most beautiful 8c in the world? This question is impossible to answer obviously. But Mind Control at Oliana in Spain might well be considered one of the most beautiful of all. The quality seal comes from the first ascentionist, a certain Chris whose surname happens to be Sharma. And then all those who repeated the route (a fair few by now) confirmed that it's an amazing line. Numerous women have passed this long test of technique and stamina such as Daila Ojeda, Sasha DiGiulian, Caroline Ciavaldini, Akiyo Noguchi, Barbara Raudner, Evgeniya Malamid, Mar Álvarez and Aleksandra Taistra. The video of the Polish climber's “interpretation” of Mind Control in 2013 is now online. For the record, the first onsight of this route was carried out in 2011 by Adam Ondra (when the route was still “officially” considered 8c+) while last year Silvio Reffo managed to flash it.
