The 23-year-old Spaniard Jorge Diaz-Rullo Calvo has struggled for a long time in his first ascent project in the Spanish climbing crag of Margalef, and has now brought it to a good end. The result was his hardest route „Mejorando la Samfaina“ to date, which he graded with 9b+.

It would be, if the difficulty is confirmed, only the 12th route in this grade (or harder), but already the second route, after Excalibur, in this grade this year.
