Recently, Romain Desgranges left his home in Chamonix and made a short trip to Albarracin, Spain, where he in four days repeated nine problems in the 8th grade.
Romain won the European Championships this year and is mostly known as a lead competition climber, but outdoors he seems to focus more on bouldering.
