Von Jonathan Siegrist gibt es auch mal wieder was Neues. So konnte er mit „One Hundred Proof“ (9a+/5.15a) im Klettergebiet Mt. Potosi (Nevada) eine neue Toproute erstbegehen. Insgesamt hat der US-Amerikaner nun schon 13 Routen im Grad 9a+ bis 9b absolviert. Darunter mit „Jumbo Love und „La Planta de Shiva“ zwei 9b-Routen.

I’ve been inching my way higher and higher on this monstrous route over the last 2 weeks, but the process really started over a month ago trying hard on its easier sibling ‘Smoke Wagon’. Yesterday I finally hung on for the ride and took this bastard to the chains! ‘One Hundred Proof’ 5.15a is one of the hardest routes I’ve climbed in quite a while. Just as I started to really stress the time pressure, it feels SO relieving to wrap this up. Now only one week left until we’re off to Italy! Keep your eyes peeled for an @epictvclimbing video part on this route from @orographic_visual also featuring the King.
