Took me a minute to see what anon was saying. I think "Another 9a" refers to his last 9a... Victimas Perez, also second ascent... not Demencia senil, which in the interview he seemed never said was not 9a+... though in the dubbing he did with him climbing Demencia he seemed to waver a bit, saying yes a couple of longer moves can be the difference between 9a and 9a+ but it was hard to say.

Just to make things clearer. by "9a-range" I mean 9a - 9a+, nothing else.
