Hyper Finale 9a+ by Dylan Chuat

29 May 2022

Dylan Chuat has done the first repeat of Adam Ondra's Hyper Finale (9a+) in Rawyl from 2016. Previously the 21-year-old has done nine 9a's including Super Finale. Dylan needed five sessions to do Super Finale and then two more to send his first 9a+.

"You climb all the hard parts of Super Finale 9a and then exit to the right through two hard cruxes. First, some crimps which end with a risk-taking dyno into a jug. After that, you have another big boulder crux, on super small holds which some climbers have said is like an 8B boulder! I found a significantly different method but it is still no less than an 8A+ boulder." (c) Rémi Degenne
