As far as I know only Alex Megos, who did it 2nd go has done it faster.
I'm here in Spain for filming First round first minute and I decided to try La Rambla before going to Margalef. But I did non expected to climb it so fast.
I tried a flash attempt and fell after the crack, then on my second go I fell before the crux.
Yesterday I fell once on last crux and then I sent it!
Compared to shorter routes like First round..., Stefano says:
Probably this is more my style, endurance with boulder at the top, I know I can rest very well on small holds so at the beginning of the crux I was well rested.
In the last year, Stefano has climbed no less than five 9a+'s and one 9b. Add one WC victory and that he has the highpoint of The Project in Stockholm to the success list and it's pretty clear things are looking really good for the upcoming season!
He is currently ranked #4 in the World.
