Arrested Development 9a by Cameron Hörst

Wednesday, 30 September

Cameron Hörst has done his third 9a, Arrested Development in Mt Charleston, video. It was bolted back in the 90s but it was not opened until 2012 by Ethan Pringle."Steep and powerful moves between pockets to a sequential headwall. Stays with you till the end. Love it! Only 4 sessions of work so I'd say low end 9a. (c) Jonathan Sieghrist

" I only had a short, two weeks, trip here so I wanted a project I thought I could send relatively fast. The first couple days I sampled some other potential protects but ended up deciding on Arrested Development. The route came together quite fast over the first couple sessions. However, the weather is unseasonably hot. So I rested a couple days waiting for the cooler weather. Once that came I found my self clipping the chains on the fourth day of work! Once this trip to Vegas concludes, I will be back east in October and November to climb at the New and Red River Gorge. I have a quite a few hard climbs to do at those ares yet!"

The 20-year-ol, who is the oldest son to famous trainer Eric, did his first 8b+ at age 11. Later the focus was building a wide pyramid and he always took some months as a quarter back in high school. With a more focus on rock climbing, this new 9a level is possibly just a start for doing harder routes.

Some ten years ago, you still had to place the draws if you were going to claim an onsight. The devaluation of ethics have continued and now…

No correlation between semi and final results for Top-4 in Boulder WCs

During the Bouldering World Championship in 2007, Daniel Dulac won the semifinal by flashing all four problems but in the final he did not do a single Boulder even if each of the other five finalists did three problems on average. Daniel said that it was extremely frustrating to hear the spectators …
