4sport.ua has put together some interesting 9a+ to 9c diagrams showing that the climbers are getting better. Although the Covid-19 restrictions, 2020 is, in fact, yet another new record year. Until 2013, there were only max eleven different climbers who had done 9a+ and harder annually. Since then, the progress has been dramatic and last year there were 43 different climbers. In total, these 43 climbers made 63 ascents 9a+ and harder.

In the individual statistics, Adam Ondra has done 67 followed by Seb Bouin 23, Chris Sharma and Alex Megos 22. Fifth on that list is Stefano Ghisolfi with 21 ascents 9a+ and harder.
