Jakob Schubert, of Austria, has made the second ascent of Adam Ondra’s Planta de Shiva (9b/5.15b) in Villanueva del Rosario, Spain. Schubert now joins the ranks of Ondra, Chris Sharma and Dani Andrada as the fourth climber in history to have sent two 5.15bs, according to UKC.

“After the biggest fight of my life I managed to clip the anchor of this amazing line,” Schubert reported on Instagram. “Super happy and proud to have sent this one, my hardest route so far. Time for fiesta!”

The route links a section of 5.14b into a steep and crimpy upper half to create a 45-meter endurance test-piece. Schubert called it his “hardest route so far.”

Last year, Schubert sent his first 5.15b with Chris Sharma’s Flight or Flight in Oliana. In August, Schubert—only a few days behind Alex Megos—bagged the third ascent of Thor’s Hammer (9a+/5.15a) in Norway’s Flatanger Cave. He was the World Cup Lead Champion in 2012.
