Der Österreicher Jakob Schubert startet hervorragend ins neue Jahr. Im gelingt mit „Stoking the Fire“ seine dritte 9b. Es war nach Chris Sharma und Adam Ondra auch die dritte Begehung der Route. Jakob ist immer noch einer der wenigen Kletterer, die eine 9b Route wiederholen konnten. Glückwunsch Jakob.

Er meint dazu bei Instagram:

„Today was the day ? 3rd ascent after @chris_sharma and @adam.ondra , my third route in the 9b grade ?
Once again I enjoyed to whole process of trying something hard a lot. It feels like I could have send this one much faster but this way I learned some more lessons again and an ascent always feels even better if it took a bit of a psychological battle as well ?
Thanks to all my friends and the rest of the climbers that supported me so much during the past 10 days in Santa Linya! Climbing hard is just so much easier if you are surrounded by nice and motivated people and you are having a blast being outside climbing ?
I will write some infos and thoughts about the route on my @thecrag_worldwide profile soon (link in my bio)“
