Victima Perfecta 8c+ (9a/+) by Jorge diaz-rullo

Monday, 24 May

Jorge Diaz-Rullo has done the first repeat of Ramon Julian Puigblanque's Victima Perfecta in Margalef. "Ramonet", well known for his hard FA grades, put it up in 2008 and originally graded it 8c+, but Jorge gives it a 9a/+ personal grade. "Even harder than Gancho Perfecto (9a/+), although Ramón Julián said between 8c + and 9a... Pure continuity in the overhang into the line to the left, incredible! I fell 3 times in the last move, good training!"

The 21-year-old has now 43 routes 9a and harder in his scorecard which can be compared with 51 for Ramonet up to 9a+. However, based on the recent upgrades suggested for the 39-year-old's FA, it just might be that Ramonet in practice has done 55 up to 9b. Ramonet, who is 159 cm tall, has won 21 World Cups and the World Championship two times, and only Adam Ondra and Alex Megos have better tick lists in the world. Jorge is #7 in the world and he has been #1 in the 8a ranking for the last two years.
