9a by Jan and 8c by Molly

Sunday, 26 July

Jan Hojer and Molly Thompson-Smith have had some great days in Frankenjura having done Der Heilige Gral 9a and Father and Son 8c, respectively.

Jan: ”It’s rare to find this route dry which added some pressure to finish it off this trip. In the end it took me 4 days. We are going back to Cologne now for a little bit before we drive to Ceuse.”

Molly: “The last few months on rock were great for me to get more familiar with my rock climbing level, and start to push myself to climb things quicker and try harder lines. After watching Jan on ‘Der Heiliger Gral, 9a’ I decided to check it out and could do all the moves so I hope it stays dry enough for a few more sessions this summer! My other new project is ‘Infinity, 8c+’ at Eldorado. I love how short and powerful this crag is and I’m not sure many women have climbed the harder routes here so it’s a nice challenge!“

Daniel said that it was extremely frustrating to hear the spectators …
