Esclatamasters 8c+/9a by Moritz Welt

10 April 2022

Moritz Welt has done a quick ascent of Escalatamasters 8c+/9a in Perles. "5 tries. crazy rock quality and some of the sharpest crimps I know on the upper half, lost lots of blood on the send^^ honestly, idk about the grade, so I'll just give it a personal 8c+/9a."

How come you have mainly focused on "easier" routes this trip? (Ten 8b+ and harder in three weeks)
Well, I broke my foot in January and wasn't climbing for two months so the first two weeks were mostly about getting back in shape. On the other hand, I started projecting some harder stuff about 1 week ago ;)

How did you break your foot?
I was bouldering in Ticino and had a bad fall
