Piotr Schab has done his fifth 9a+ the last year, La Rambla (9a+) in Siurana. The Pole did his first 9a being 16 years old and is now one of the best onsight climbers in the world. Dave Graham was denied this success so far he fell on the last move.

Piotr after his ascent: „I’ve started trying La Rambla this week, giving it a warm-up go and one try each day. Yesterday during the warm-up go I changed betas in three different sections so sending the route right afterwards was very unexpected. Felt solid all the way up + the conditions were prime. Eventually I sent La Rambla during my 4th day on it, 8 tries with 4 warm-ups included. Such a shame Dave (Graham) fell on the very last move right after my ascent.
