In Time 9a by Martin Bergant

Saturday, 30 May

Martin Bergant, #4 in the European Championship, has done his first 9a, In Time in Sopota. It is a seldom repeated spectacular Jernej Kruder route with an 8A dyno followed with more hard boulders sequences. The 24-year-old has been an active competition climber for ten years who had his best year last year after previously having struggled to reach the semi.

”Since the start of the covid-19 pandemic all the competitions are postponed or cancelled, so now I am able to put all the focus on climbing in rock for the first time in my career. Like all the other climbers did a lot of fingerboard training and increased my finger strength during the lockdown. Obviously I can already see the progress I made and managed to send my first 9a, In Time. Now I want to stay in this flow and see how many hard routes i can climb until the competition season restarts.”
