Julia Chanourdie has repeated Alberto Gnerro's Ground zero, 9a, at the Tetto di Sarre in the Aosta valley, Italy. This was the first of the grade for the 20 year old from Aviernoz, France.

"WAOUHHH ! Yesterday I realised my first 9a Ground Zero at the Tetto di Sarre in Italy !!!
It's definitely the best moment, to be like the "queen of the world" for an instant..." 

When it was put up back on 11 September 2002, one year exactly after 9/11, it was the first 9a in Italy.

Last spring, Julia repeated L'avaro, 8c+, slightly to the left at the same crag.

She is currently #6 in the World in Lead on the IFSC Ranking.
