As some of you no doubt know already, Alizée Dufraisse has made it her long term goal to repeat Ramòn Julian Puigblanque's iconic La Rambla original, 9a+, at Siurana, Spain.
This spring when she went down there again, the plan wasn't to keep working it as she wasn't in that phase of her training program, but she couldn't resist trying it anyway.... and as it felt so good, she ended up working on it for the entire five weeks.
