Mamajama 9a+ FA by Joel Kinder (42)

22 April 2022

Joel Kinder has done yet another stunning hardcore FA, Mamajamma (9a+). "(Pronounced: ma'am-uh-jam-uh) Bolted during March 2020 as our pandemic crag where we could be alone. Likely 25-30 days of effort over the past two years. The perfect white face of clean rock that meets the flap and continues to connect with JoeXotic. Could be HARD as fuck 9a, but not sure as it's confusing with the bouldery-type-rigs. I hate grading this particular route for a number of reasons, but my personal, honest belief and feeling for ME is 9a+."

The 42-year-old has previously done 16 routes 9a and 9a+, out of which, nine FAs. He did his first 9a, in 2008 and his first 8c+ 20 years ago. On Insta he reports. "The route is a dime. Zero choss/amazing rock, hard as fuck sections, lots of fatigue and a relentless exit boulder problem. The entirety of the route is about 120’ long and has a rope transfer at the lip with a kneebar (see the video, actual send)."
