Apparently heat has no effect on Ramon Julian Puigblanque who repeated Catxasa (9a+) in 102 degree temps on June 26th. Overall Ramon Julian gave the route ten goes over four days, but obviously he was just waiting for it to be so hot that the skin would melt off his hands. Everyone knows bone on rock has the greatest friction. The line, located in Santa Lina, Spain, was put up by Sharma in 2011 and has seen attempts from the likes of Adam Ondra and other strong climbers. If you can read spanish check out his blog entry on the climb here. If you can’t sucks for you, but here’s a cool video of this Spanish strongman climbing  La Rambla Direct (9a+).
