Amma onsighting <em>Migranya Profunda</em> (5.14a). Photo by <a target=Eddie Gianelloni.” />Japanese bone crusher Sachi Amma recently got down to business in Spain. Seamlessly switching from cutting edge onsights to world-class redpoints, Amma’s ticklist is impressive to say the least. During his two week Spanish tear, Amma managed a six-try ascent of the Sharma testpiece Era Vella (5.14d) at Margalef. Also at Margalef, Amma onsighted the 5.13c Operacion Bikini, and came painstakingly close to flashing Coma Sant Pere (5.14c), but instead settled for second-try send.

At the classic area of Siurana, Amma pimped the techy crimps of Migranya Profunda (5.14a) on his first try, clipping the chains and onsighting the route. He also cranked out a second-try ascent of Ramadan (5.13d).
