Jaxitax 8B and 8A+ FA by Jana Vincourková

Monday, 1 June

Jana Vincourková has had a great weekend that started with doing her first 8B, Jaxitax in Moravský kras, video. Then she did the FA's of Napříč Amerika 8A+ and Michigan 8A in Slapsko.

"After sending a few 8A+ I was thinking about taking it a little bit further and try to some 8B which I set in January as the goal for 2020. Also, no woman in Czechia has ever done 8B before, so it was motivating even more. Anyway, one day we arrived in Moravian Karst-Sloup. My boyfriend tried some boulders there and by the way, told me that this one is Jaxitax-8B (FA by Adam Ondra) and that it could fit my style. So why not to try it and I have to say that it went very well. It was amazing feeling.

After that, we went to another bouldering area where we explored some new boulders and I ended up this weekend by sending another 8A+ FA, 8A FA, 7C FA. The grades were confirmed by strong Štěpán Stráník and by boyfriend Martin Švec right away, I was just lucky to send it as the first one."
