Muriel Sarkany (43) has repeated Chris Sharma's Era Vella, 9a, at Margalef, Spain. This was the Belgian's second of the grade after PuntX, which she climbed four years ago.

I'm so happy after sending Era Vella my second 9a !!!!!!
thanks Chris Sharma for bolting this amazing 50 meters long King line

After retiring from her extremely successful competition career, resulting in five over all World Cup victories as well as World and European Championship Gold medals between 1997 and 2004, Muriel has focused on redpointing hard on rock instead.

She hasn't been entirely unsuccesful to put it mildly and she now has two 9a's and several 8c+ under her belt.
