Ali Hulk Sit Start Extension Total 9b by Laura Rogora

19-year-old Italian climber Laura Rogora has become the second woman to climb 9b after Angela Eiter, with a redpoint of Ali Hulk Sit Start Extension Total in Ali Baba's Cave in Rodellar, Spain. The route is a 15 move boulder problem link-up into an extended 9a+.

The original line is Ali Hulk (9a) with variants including an extension, a sit-start and a combination of both plus the latest link-up by Spanish youth Jonathan Flor in 2019, who completed a major link from the sit start through to the end of Piotr Schab's extension to create Ali Hulk Sit Start Extension Total 9b.

Rogora started climbing at the age of 4 and qualified for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games in 2019. As of July 2020, Rogora has redpointed thirteen routes of 8c+/9a or harder, making her the most accomplished female rock climber in the world.
