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.

La Rambla is the route climbed by Alexander Huber in 1994 which ends at a chain and is called La Rambla Original. Puigblanque linked the route to another route nearby, via a traverse. His version is known as La Rambla extension. Huber graded his route 8c+/5.14c.[1] Puigblanque climbed it to the chain and gave it a 9a+/5.15a grade, then traversed to the other route. 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:
