Rather than hitting the "brick wall" known as Three degrees of separation, which I suggested, Ramón Julian Puigblanque made the significantly more intelligent decision to try something else, somewhere else.

The venue: La cour des grands-sector, Entraygues (Entraigues?), near Briançon (easier to spell than to say?)
The route: Toni Lamiche's San Ku kaï, 9a
The result: 4th ascent in 2 tries

San ku kai, which consists of around 20 moves in steep terrain, was bolted by Yann Ghesquiers, and first done by Toni in 2007. It has since been repeated by Gabri Moroni and Enzo Oddo.

While Ramonet was at it, he also onsighted an 8b, an 8a+ and an 8a.
