Digital system 8c flash by Jonathan Siegrist

14 April 2022

Jonathan Siegrist, who three days ago did his 9a #41, JoeDan (c) Cameron Maier, has flashed Digital system (8c) in Santa Linya. In just the last two months, the 36-year-old has done seven routes 8c to 9a+ and he is #2 in the 8a ranking game.

"My friend Dru Mack gave me the beta for the first half (the crux) but I did not have any beta for the second half. SO when I made it to the middle rest he actually swapped out the belay with Yann so he could go far back from the wall and give me running beta. I had to improvise (as always) for some sections but otherwise his beta was great! He knows me and my size (I am only 167cm) really well so normally he can help me with beta for me specifically. It was a goal of mine in Santa Linya since I first saw the line! It's a beauty. I don't have a background in competition at all so typically I am not a great flash or especially onsight climber, but I love to try."
