Amma was working Stocking the Fire (5.15b) along Adam Ondra in Santa Linya, but according to Facebook, “…was a bit tired to make a try on it today,” so “went for Catxasa.”

On Facebook, he wrote, “I had big fight on the first crux and at the last, but I made it. Sending [5.15a] on my 4th go is my best performance ever!”

According to 8a.nu, Sachi has sent five routes between 5.14d and 5.15b within a two-week time period, on par with Adam Ondra’s best performance.
