Santa Linya action for Ramon Julian Puigblanque
At Santa Linya, Spain, Ramon Julian Puigblanque makes the first ascent of Open your mind Directa and climbs La Fabelita 9a and La novena Enmienda 9a in a day
Ramon Julian Puigblanque, best known for his outstanding indoor competition results, has been spending more time outdoors lately and the results, unsurprisingly, are outstanding.
Yesterday the Catalan climber visited Santa Linya, Spain's steepest hotspot and fired off two 9a's in a day, La Fabelita and the 52 meter stamina fest La novena Enmienda. These two routes confirm the reigning World Champion's incredible form: just a few days earlier he had made the first ascent of Open your mind Directa, which may well weigh in at 9a+.
With the likes of Ramonette, Dani Andrada and Chris Sharma all at Santa Linya, no doubt there will be plenty more to report about soon.
