Jonathan Siegrist reports from Las Vegas


Wednesday, 22 April

Jonathan Siegrist had just arrived in Italy where they planned to stay a month when they quickly had to return back home to Las Vegas. "All things considered, I feel very grateful. We have made some sacrifices, sure, but nothing compared to so many around the world. We are allowed to leave the house for groceries, important business, and exercise. Most of the climbing areas are closed (Red Rock, Mt Charleston, etc) so it’s been a great opportunity for me to explore for new cliffs and more than anything I’ve been working on a lot of home building projects! For training I just do a series of one arm hangs (I’ve never done this before but because I don’t have anything too fancy at home this is the best for me right now) also some Hangs with both hands like 2 finger etc. and some front levers and simple pull-ups. Right now I do simple training about 4-5 days a week."
