New grade for ¨El Mutante¨ water solo problem

Water soloing the new 
V8 or V9?

El Mutante (water solo boulder problem at Los Cangilones de Gualaca) recently changed from grade v7 to grade v8 or even v9 due to an important hold missing.

A rock used at the crux of the climb just broke making the whole sequence significantly more difficult. Here is a video of the first ascend of the new route using some new dynamic movements. In previous publications of this blog it is possible to watch some videos climbing the same route while using its original sequences.

Personally, I prefer the new sequence. Hope more climbers give it a try and give their opinion about the grade. Enjoy one of the Panama´s classic water solo problem ¨El Mutante¨
