Dave Graham scores the most famous 9a + in the world: La Rambla

Last weekend Dave Graham completed the redpoint ascent of 9a + Route La Rambla in Siurana. It is the 25. Inspection of the route.

"This guy was the master of the wall today", wrote the professional athlete Alizée Dufraisse last Saturday, March 2nd, 2019. The American was meant Dave Graham, He managed to get through the most famous and most repeated 9a + in the world: La Rambla in the Spanish sports climbing area siurana.

First serious attempt a year ago

For the first time on the route, today's 37 year-old was already 13 years ago. At that time his focus was clearly on bouldering and he did not plan the route seriously. He made serious in February 2018, as he worked on the route for a long time. Dave had to turn his back on the route and wait for this year's season. On Saturday, 3. March 2019, it was time. He succeeded in the 25. Inspection of La Rambla in siurana.

On to the next project

For Dave, La Rambla is the third 9a + route of his career. Before that, get to him Biography in Céüse (France), Thor's Hammer in Flatanger (Norway). Last year and this year he had with La Capella (9b) next to La Rambla a second project. Thanks to the Rambla, Dave can now fully concentrate on the 9b route.
