Anak Verhoeven sends Patxitxulo 9a/+ at Oliana in Spain

by

Belgian climber Anak Verhoeven has made the first repeat of Patxitxulo 9a/+ at Oliana in Spain.

Anak Verhoeven has celebrated her return to full fighting form after rupturing a pulley just over a year ago with the first repeat of Patxitxulo 9a/+ at Oliana in Spain. The route is a connection of an existing 8c+ and a 9a+, more specifically the cruxes of Joe Blau and Papichulo, and was first linked by Patxi Usobiaga in 2017.

In the past, the 25-year-old Belgian climber has climbed three 9a+, Joe Mama at Oliana once again, Sweet Neuf at Pierrot Beach in France in 2017 and, later that same year, Ciudad de Dios 9a/+ at Santa Linya. Shortly before getting injured she established the most difficult sport climb in Belgium, Kraftio dedicated to the late Chloé Graftiaux.
