Third ascent of La Rambla (original) by Chris Sharma

Here we go!
As we announced few days ago Chris Sharma was really close to La Rambla, 9a+ (Siurana, Spain)!

It seems that Chris needed something like 20 tries (far less than The Arch ...).

La Rambla was first climbed by Alex Huber in 1994, but, apparently, to a lower chain (if we didn't get it wrong! -> read here) and graded 8c+.

Ramon Julian Puigblanque has then been the first to climb what is now known as La Rambla (aka La Rambla original), and namely the 40m route just repeated by Edu Marin and Chris Sharma, and he suggested 9a+.

La Rambla original is a real benchmark for high grade routes, like Biographie (aka Realization) in Ceuse, France. Apart for the beauty of its line, this is due to the fact that several top-level climbers have tried it including Daniel Andrada, Christian Bindhammer, Yuji Hirayama, Dave Graham, Alex Chabot, and just 3 of them succeded:

1. Ramon Julian Puigblanque (8th of March 2003)
2. Edu Marin (30th of November 2006)
3. Chris Sharma (1st of December 2006)
