Event Horizon 9b FA by Jonathan Siegrist

31 May 2022

Jonathan Siegrist has done the FA of Event Horizon (9b) in 5G. The 36-year-old did his first 9b in 2018 and this was his fourth. In total, he has now done 64 routes 9a and harder and as a matter of a fact, his last year is his best with ten such graded climbs. (c) Katy Dannenberg

"The direct finish to Nu World (9a+) that I've dreamt about for years! After coming back from Spain I starting working hard on this, training for it, and deciphering the intricate beta in the upper two thirds. I was really unsure if I'd have a good shot before leaving town again but in some of the best shape of my life, with a huge and memorable fight in the second half, I climbed it! Very resistant long boulder problem to start, next is a fins style vertical crux, and finally seven bolts of all-out-pumpy and technical climbing with no good rest to the finish. I used one right knee to clip the second bolt. Without question, for my height, and my methods, this route is one of my absolute hardest. It was a total joy to learn this route and climb it. Grateful!"

What are your summer plans? Now I’m in Ceuse! It’s so amazing to revisit this place. No plans for routes. Just want to try hard and enjoy.
