Because of the demands of top-level competition climbing, athletes who focus on this discipline often have relatively few hard ascents under their belts on real rock. Ramón Julián is a notable exception to this rule. By successfully clipping the chains on Chris Sharma's Power Inverter (5.15a/9a+) at Oliana, Spain, he achieved his tenth route in the 9th grade. Ramón's prolific record on rock is due in no small part to his wife who, despite her fear of heights, accompanies Ramón to the crag whenever he is in need of a partner. In this video, she talks about her own dedication to her husband's passion, highlighting perhaps the reason why he was able to make the first repeat of this pumpy test piece.
