CÚdric Lachat has made the 3rd ascent of Chris Sharma's Chaxi, 9a+, at Oliana, Spain.
The 45 meter route was first climbed by Sharma in 2011 and had so far only been repeated by Adam Ondra, who then went on to add an ~8B+ direct start which bumps the grade of the resulting route, Chaxi Raxi (video below), up to 9b. This route has yet to see a repeat.
