Nach seinem Landsmann Stefano Carnati Ende letzten Jahres konnte nun auch Gabri Moroni eine Begehung von „Demencia Senil“ (9a+) in Margalef in Spanien punkten. Die Route wurde von Chris Sharma im Jahr 2009 erstbegangen und war damals die schwerste Route in Margalef. Für Gabri der schon nicht mehr so recht an eine Begehung glaubte, war es die 7. Begehung der Route.

„Catalunya, especially Siurana and Margalef, have always been my “winter holidays” choice for more than a decade… During the first five or so years, I repeated a good number of hard routes till 9a but never really tried anything at my limit. I remember staring at Demencia Senil from below countless times knowing it might suit my style but something stopped me from trying it until December 2014… That day, I wouldn’t have ever thought I had just started such a biblical process with a lot of trips, amazing days but also some shitty ones, trashed skin, blood and countless meters of tape… But at the end it was all worth it and I have never stopped believing!…“
