Jungle Boogie 9a+ by Stefano Carnati

Tuesday, 7 July

Stefano Carnati, World Youth Champion in 2013, has done his fourth 9a+, Jungle Boogie in Céüse which Adam Ondra put up in 2012. Last year, the Italian worked it for around ten days and this year it went down during a three day trip.

"25 really intense moves, on some of the sharpest crimps I’ve ever grabbed, without any rests, make up the first part of the route. The redpoint crux consists of a reachy lock off to a good two fingers pocket, which was not that hard for me to do individually, but coming from the ground it really became a struggle against finger numbness after so much crimping. Happily last Friday everything worked out all right! Reaching the jug at the end of this sequence was a moment of pure joy, but staying present on the upper easier 20 meters slab (no fall zone) without any more energies and sensation in my fingers was definitely the real mental challenge. And it lasted fifteen long minutes!" More info on his Insta
