For Jonathan it was the 4th ascent of the Adam Ondra route from the year 2011. Overall. The American has now completed 12 routes in grade 9a+ or 9b. Jonathan by instgram: „The hardest part about climbing at your limit is balancing the emotions of wanting something with such overwhelming intensity and also somehow finding the strength to let it go and be free from the pressure. I found some kind of middle path today on ‘La Planta de Shiva’ 9b. It was an absolute battle to the death and I will never forget it. Thank you so much to @dustygene @neelyquinn @seth_lytton @escharas21 (@shainasavoy from afar!) and the amazing people here in Andalucia for the support and the laughs and the motivation! As with every emotional send, I leave a piece of my heart at the chains!! Photograph from the incredibly talented“ Foto: (c) Javi Pec
