Mandanga Total 9a (8c+) and three 8c+' by Jonathan Siegrist
OffLine 8a.nu

Jonathan Siegrist, who did a 9b in Villanueva del Rosario ten days ago, has at the same crag done Mandanga total 9a (8c+) and another three 8c+' the last week. (c) Javi Pec

"Hard boulder problems and very good rests. Any line that goes to the top of this cliff is automatically 4 stars! Tough to grade, but seems like low 9a for the cliff. 3 tries including the bottom. No knee bars."

J-star is #3 in the 8a ranking game and in total he has now done 43 routes 9a and harder. More info on his Insta. "This last week has been awesome for me, feeling relief that the main objective is over and climbing a muerte on these other 5 star lines. At this point my body and mind are completely blown out, and it’s time for some serious rest."

Not bad, considering he only did his his first 9b when being over 33 years old!!! Late bloomers such as J-star give me hope I'll climb 9A+ too someday. Venga!

At 33 he was a spring chicken by my measures. Call him late-blossomer if you like.

No ascent of Action Directe tho?? I fear this late bloomer is wilting before he gets a chance to really flower.

The send of Planta Da Shiva gets no coverage, though?

I hate to be that guy but is this really news? J star climbs 8c+ for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
