Genetic Drifter 8c+ by Jonathan Hörst (18)

Monday, 19 July

Jonathan Hörst, who did his first 8b (+) at age ten, has done Genetic Drifter 8c+ in Wild Iris. (c) Eric Hörst "Let's GOOOOO!!! After wiring all the moves last year I finally came back with some endurance to give it some goes. Unfortunate tweak on the first mono move 10 days prior but somehow managed to send on my first redpoint go after injury (and ever) on this link. The best line I've done on this wall."

What do you mean by a tweak and what impact did it have?
I had a tweak in my forearm from pulling on a mono on this route when I wasn’t fully warmed up. So since it happened like two weeks ago I spent like 10 days before my send climbing easier climbs and ones without pockets. Then sent the 8c+ my first day back on this route after the tweak!
