Jakob Schubert has repeated Chris Sharma's El Bon Combat in the Cova de l'ocell not far from Barcelona, Spain. Chris gave the route 9b/+ whereas Jakob is leaning towards it being a bit easier, hard 9a+ or so. This was the first repeat.

One of the best routes I have ever done. The one and only Chris Sharma established this route in 2015.Chris actually accompanied me on my last two days at the crag and it was awesome to share the moment of the send with him, thanks a lot for the good times and huge respect for putting up just another testpiece here in Catalunya!

Regarding the grade, Chris says that, although it's for sure possible the route is "only" 9a+, it could also be that the World Champion and World Cup winner is in insanely good shape right now and doesn't know his own strength.
