First 8c+ slab in La Pedriza by Ignacio Mulero

It’s basically an overhung ladder with pinches on the sides.  The ladder rungs are dowels though…so they’re softer on your hands.  I use it to campus, jump in between the dowels, try and campus the pinches (working on that one)….it’s a cool apparatus because the exercises are basically limitless!

Thanks for the kind words :)

A really good place to start for technique is to climb on the slab.  Because slabs are more balancy and technical they force you to have better footwork (plus the feet are generally smaller).  Climbing outside on vertical/slab climbing can help as well!  Technique takes time to learn, but you definitely have the right idea with trying to learn it the right way :)

Good luck!!

Gregor Vezonik, who was #31 in the first Boulder WC in 2017 and who has done more than ten 8B boulders, has done his first 9a, Aikula in Burjakove peci which is his local home crag. (c) Rok Klancnik "The line was bolted 20 years ago by my uncle and Uros Perko got the FA. Then some holds broke and then Domen Skopfic did it two years ago. I tried it for the first time six years ago as a joke. Then a couple of times later. Started working seriously on it three years ago and almost sent it two years ago when I was trying it with Domen. Last year I probably had four sessions on it and this year I did it on my second session. it has been an incredible journey to finally tick it off."

Belmez Face publishes in FB the FA of Territorio Comanche 8c+ in El Hueso, La Pedriza by Ignacio Mulero. The route is a extreme-friction 35m climbing, starting with a section of 7c+ with 'no hands', followed by a bouldery little roof before the never ending upper slab where Mulero was falling over and over again in the last few weeks. Mulero has previously done a few 9a's and 8C boulder, and during the last two winters, he did the hardest slabs to date up to 8b+ and free climbed some old trad routes in the 8b+ range. (C) Talo Martín - Muérdago Films. After a very long process in which he was losing skin and partners to join him (1h hike), luckily and despite the bad conditions (it was sunny and it needs a cloudy and cold day for the south face climbing), he and his partner woke up very early to be at the crag (07:20), and after a warm up placing the draws for the last time he did it in his first go. La Pedriza is just 50km from Madrid and with its 3 600 routes and 2 500 boulder problems makes it one of the biggest granite crags in Europe. The route should be one of the hardest slabs in the world considering that there are basically no holds. It is just smears and microscopic crystals that could not be compared to slabs like Tough Enough 8c+ in Madagascar or Meltdown 9a in Wales where there are 'holds'. An interview to Ignacio Mulero will come soon to 8a.nu.
