Patanics is an epic link up that connects Pata Negra 8c into Botanics 8b via the crux on No Pain No Gain 9a+ in the Las Ventanas cave, Rodellar.
The route was established in the summer of 2019 by Jorge Diaz-Rullo and was repeated in Autumn 2019 by Seb Bouin.
It took Seb a couple of days to work out the beta through the massive roof, but once that was figured out he quickly sent it despite several key holds being dripping wet.
Its rare to get the opportunity to see actual sends. Usually when filming climbs the routes are well rehearsed and look effortless, but on the send – things are more raw and the effort is real – as was the case on this occasion.
