UKClimbing.com | 8a.nu

Bolted by Randy Leavitt. See also Suprême Jumbo Love.

The first confirmed 9b in the world when Chris Sharma made the first ascent in 2008. Akira and Chilam Balam were both claimed at 9b before but Akira has settled at 9a following repeats and the it is believed that Chilam Balam was not actually climbed until later.

Bolted by Randy Leavitt who originally imagined it as a 3 pitch route.

Seb used some new beta through the crux revolving around a very slippery knee bar. He felt this was similar difficult to Chris Sharma's more dynamic method, though a little more reliable [2].
