Bone Tomahawk 9a+ by Cameron Hörst

Tuesday, 25 May

Cameron Hörst has done his first 9a+, Bone Tomahawk in Fynn Cave. (c) J.P. Melville "WOOHOO! My hardest climb yet, next level for me. 15+ sessions of work over the last month and a half. The route has settled at 9a/+ grade range. However, I've sent 9as, and worked a ton of them. This thing is on a whole different level (at least for me). But hell, I'm confident in my abilities and I know other ascensionists have expressed similar views to mine. Regardless, amazing route. So special to have the first ascensionist (Joe Kinder) as my partner during the process! Gang."

The FA Joe Kinder graded it 9a+ and in total it has five ascents out of which three have thought it is a 9a+. Cameron did his first 8c at age 14 but he has only been climbing full time for two years as he during high school, has been a successful quarterback. Cameron's father is the famous coach and author Eric Hörst.
