Dave Graham Repeats First Ley 5.15a in Spain

And listen to a recent podcast where he talks about future projects

Dave Graham, 39, has sent First Ley 5.15a in Margalef, Spain, which shares the same start as First Round, First Minute 5.15b and finishes up Ley Innata. Both routes were first climbed by Chris Sharma.

Graham had been projecting First Ley on and off for a decade. After recently finding some new beta, he was able to link it together this past weekend. He’s currently projecting a number of 5.15b lines, including First Round, First Minute and La Capella.

Graham has been one of the world’s leading climbers for two decades. In fall 2020, he made the fifth ascent of Ali Hulk Sit Start Extension Total 5.15b in Rodellar. In 2008, he made the FA of The Island V15 in Font and in 2005 he made the FA of The Story of Two Worlds V15.

You can listen to a new podcast with Graham where he talks about travel and hard routes here. Watch Polish crusher Mateusz Haladaj send First Ley below.
