Demencia senil, 9a+, by Ramonet

Ramon Julian Puigblanque, the current World Cup and European champion, has made the third ascent, after Chris Sharma and Iker Pou, of the pocket nightmare, or dream, Demencia Senil, 9a+, in the "laboratory" of Margalef, in Cataluña.

This is his fifth 9a+.

As is always the case with Mr Weekend Warrior Extraordinaire, Ramon also onsighted some 8b's and redpointed the odd 8c.

Nice job Ramonet! My money is on him to make the 3rd ascent of Golpe de Estado.

Onsighting in competitions is pretty different to onsighting out on the crag, the atmosphere and pressure must be ridiculous when your in front of a crowd. He's onsighted 4 8c's compared to ondras 15, according to 8a anyway.
