Iker Pou on Nit de Bruixes (5.15a), Spain


Spanish climber Iker Pou made the first ascent of Nit de bruixes (5.15a), at the l'Ermitage sector at Margalef, Spain, in January. He describes the route as a 5.14b followed by a very difficult three-bolt section, with a mono-pocket crux. If confirmed at 5.15, this will be his second of the grade; Demencia Senil (5.15a), also in Margalef, marked his first.
