Direct Open Your Mind 9a (+) by Jonathan Siegrist

Jonathan Siegrist has done La Novena Puerta (8c+) and in Santa Linya. "I started trying it after Seleccio Anal, it was a great style change after such a long and super enduro pitch - to switch to something more bouldery. This route is kind of the classic hard one I think about when I picture Santa Linya so it was cool to finally get to try it. I found it quite hard! So many more here for me to experience, it's been so fun to learn about this classic hard cave."

In total, the 36-year-old has done 130 routes 8c+ and harder and actually his last year was his best ever, including five 9a+ and one 9b. In the 8a ranking game, he is #4 which also is his best ranking ever.
