Der 21-jährige Spanier Jorge Diaz-Rullo Calvo konnte nach dem Freesolo von „Darwin Dixit“ (8b+) nun wieder mit Seil eine Toproute klettern.

Jetzt holte er sich die 3. Begehung von „Mejorando Imagen“ spanischen Klettergebiet Margalef. Die Route wurde von Ramon Julian Puiblanque im Jahr 2013 erstbegangen und in seinem typischen Understatement mit „nur“ 9a eingestuft. Alex Megos konnte sich im März die erste Wiederholung sichern und schlug ein Upgrade um einen ganzen Grad auf 9b vor. Jorge Diaz-Rullo Calvo sieht die Route bei so 9a+/b.

After a great fight with my skin I can send this fanatic route of one fingers pocket and two fingers pocket bolted by @hermanospou 

With the first few tryes I thought I would do it quickly but then the truth that in each attempt I realized that something was not as easy as it seemed living from the ground. Then the psychological factor appeared when on my 5th day I failed in the last movement of the route  with all my fingers bloody.

My next two days were very bad, I fell lower due to pain in the skin and minor mistakes. And yesterday, my 8th day on the road, after about 6 attempts falling at the start, when I least thought I was going to do it the try appeared

Regarding the level, I am not very good at graduating and even more complicated when the first ascens @ramonetjp proposed 9a?! and a few weeks ago the second ascens @alexandermegos suggested 9b. I thought that really for me it is closer to the opinion of Megos, but I do not know if it would become 9b, it could be 9a+/b although I do not rule out other opinions. Of course, it will be my hardest route without kneepads Repeaters will say!!

thanks to everyone for the support and putting up with me in every attempt!
