Mejorando Imagen 9a+ (b) by Jorge Diaz-Rullo

Sunday, 16 May

Jorge Diaz-Rullo has done the third ascent of Mejorando Imagen in Margalef, which Ramon Julian Puiblanque made the FA of in 2013 as a 9a. Alex Megos did the first repeat in March and suggested an upgrade to 9b. Jorge took it down after eight working days and thinks it is 9a+/b. (c) Paul Alonso Prat

"8 working days. Incredible line equipped by Iker Pou of short resistance with explosive steps on monos and two-finger pockets. Congratulations to Ramón for that FA and to Álex Megos for the second promotion. For me, more 9a+/b, will see what repeaters will say!"

On his Insta he comments, "Of course, it will be my hardest route without kneepads 😂🥳🦵" Previously, the 21-year-old, who has been #1 in the 8a ranking years for two years, has done six 9b's.
