Ramon Julien Puigblanque 8c+ on-sight

Spanish climber Ramon Julien Puigblanque has sent his first 8c+ on-sight at Rifle, USA

Unhappy with his result in the recent Lead World Cup in Boulder, Colorado - where he placed 8th - Ramon Julien Puigblanque travelled to nearby Rifle where he managed to on-sight his first ever 8c+, "The crew".

In doing so the Spaniard has obviously joined the extremely exclusive list of climbers capable of such a momentous feat, after Patxi Usobiaga in 2007 (with Bizi euskara at Etxauri which happened to also be the first ascent of this route) and Adam Ondra during his devastating Spanish rock trip earlier this year. An achievement like this had been on the cards for a while and now the reigning World Champion can rightly state: Mission accomplished.
