Jorge Diaz-Rullo Sends ‘Bibliographie’ in France

Jorge Diaz-Rullo of Spain has completed Bibliographie (9b+) on the famous Ceuse mountain in France.

Since its first ascent in 2020 by Alex Megos, only Stefano Ghisolfi, Sean Bailey, and Sebastien Bouin have re-done the challenging climb. Bouin did it this summer.

After his first ascent, Megos proposed a grade of 9c for the line. Later, however, almost all the other climbers ranked it as 9b+, and Megos ultimately agreed. After his success, Diaz-Rullo also set it as 9b+.

Diaz-Rullo has been working hard on Bibliographie for the last two years. The 24-year-old says that he is still trying to digest the emotions that came with his success. He admitted he has mixed feelings, including a little sadness for having closed this chapter of his life.

“It won’t be the same to wake up and not have to think about ‘Bibliographie’,” he wrote on social media.
