Adam Ondra has put up another potential 5.15b at Villanueva del Rosario in southern Spain. The 150-foot La Planta de Shiva links two existing pitches, bolted by Jose Irigoyen and Manolo del Castillo. He reportedly needed only eight attempts to finish the route.
Planta sits at the same crag as Chilam Balam, which Ondra climbed just two weeks ago. This marks his fifth Spanish 5.15 in 2011, including Chilam Balam, Chaxi Raxi (FA; Oliana), La Capella (FA; Siurana), and Obrint el Sistema (FA; Santa Ana). (Don’t forget his 5.14c onsight slaughter earlier this spring.)
Below is a video of Ondra working Planta.
Date of ascent: April 2011
