Baba Yaga 9a by Samuel Ometz

Friday, 23 April

Samuel Ometz, who previously has done 15 boulders 8B+ and harder, has done his eight 9a and the first repeat of Baba Yaga in Val Bavona. Video on his Insta.

"Couldn't choose between bouldering and rope climbing so I tried this route from Giuliano Cameroni which is like bouldering with a rope :) it's an aesthetic line following an obvious arete, pretty technical with many tricky heel hooks even though it's steep. Used a kneepad for the relatively easier section that Giul didn't use. Also started the climb a bit lower adding 1 hard move because shorter people (<170?) can't reach the original start.

Felt a bit easier than other short 9a's I did, but low-end 9a might be it. 7 moves ~V13 into 15 moves ~V10 into easier topout."
