After a Gold in the World Championships in Arco and a 3rd place at Briancon, Ramón Julian Puigblanque has gone on vacation. Climbing vacation.
At Céüse he made short work of Le Cadre nouvelle version, 9a, (which nowadays is the only version anyone is climbing as far as I know). Ramonet needed 3 tries, not counting the attempts he needed for the original, chipped, version.
I've no idea what's next, but wouldn't it be cool if he could make the 2nd ascent of Sharma's 3 degrees of separation?
