Rich Simpson has made the first ascent of A Muerte 8c+/9a at Siurana, Spain

Rich Simpson continues to be the man to look out for at the moment. As reported on moonclimbing.com, Simpson is currently in Spain's Siruana where he has made the first ascent of "A Muerte", grading the line 8c+/9a.

The route had been bolted about ten years ago but the super sustained 20m series of pockets had never been previously linked. After a myriad of high profile repeats (read Action Direct 9a in October 2005, Hubble 8c+ and Wallstreet 8c in the same year), time has now come for the 22 year old to make his mark. And by the sounds of things he thoroughly enjoyed it. Thos ewith projects watch out: Rich's about!
