Juantxo Pons climbs his first 9a in Montanejos

On 15.th November 2014 Juantxo Pons did the third ascent of El Gran Bellanco, his first 9a (5.14d) route in the famous Pilas Alcalinas cave in Montanejos. One week later we came a very humid and windy day to try some rope techniques and do some footage. Here is the result!

The route was bolted for C. González and J. Lechuga in 1997 and later rebolted for Nuria Martí and Pedro Pons in 2003. The first ascent of the route is from Pedro Pons and the second is from Ramonet (Ramón Julián).
