Patxi Usobiaga has onsighted Millenium 8b+ at Misja Pec, while Fred Rouhling has made teh first ascent of Mandallaz Drive at d’Allonzier la Caille, Haute-Savoie

Patxi Usobiaga has made swift work of "Millenium" 8b+ at Slovenia's Misja Pec, adding his name to the short list of climbers who have on-sighted this mammoth 40m 8b+ (Christian Bindhammer, 2002, Tomàs Mrazek 2004). This is Usobiaga's fifth 8b+ on-sight this year and, added to his repeat of Realization 9a+ and redpoints of two 9a's and various 8c+ and 8c, makes 2004 a truly incredible year for the Spaniard.

Talking of hard routes, Fred Rouhling from France reports the completion of his long-term project "Mandallaz Drive" at d’Allonzier la Caille, Haute-Savoie. The route weighs in at 9a. Rouhling has made the first ascent of the following routes: Hugh 9a, 1993, Akira 9b 1995 and L'aute côté du ciel 9a, 1997
