He has been back in Spain for a few days now and is working on his project again. It wasn't enough for Pachamama, but Cédric doesn't have to hide with the two most recent ascents: he climbs American Hustle (8c) and Gorilas en la niebla (8b +) onsight. And it looks promising for Pachamama too.

"I am close to the ascent of Pachamama and will surely score the route soon."
