La Rambla (climb)

El Pati sector.

La Rambla (La Rambla original or La Rambla extension) is a famously difficult sport climb in Siurana, Catalonia (Spain). It's located at the sector of El Pati. The first ascent was by Alexander Huber, in 1994, and was repeated 9 years later by Ramón Julián Puigblanque in 2003, after forty or fifty tries.

The last 7 meters (extension) do not increase the grade. The grade changed from 5.14c to 5.15a because repeaters upgraded and thought the route was harder than Huber originally thought.

The repeat ascents were by:
