Following up on his recent win at Briancon, Ramon Julian Puigblanque has repeated Iker Pou's Mejorando imagen, 9a, in Margalef's Raco de la finestra sector.
Ramonet says in his blog he has had the route on his mind for a while and that he had to let it wait until after the competitions in Chamonix and Briancon to save the skin.
In total he needed seven tries spread over three days to do it. The crux revolves around some difficult moves on monos and two finger pockets.Ramon Julian Puigblanque is sponsored by: Techrock, Tenaya, Top30, Entre Prises, Trango World and PowerBar.
