Michaela Kiersch does Victimes del Futur (9a)

Michaela Kiersch, who over the last ten days has done an 8b+, 8c, 8c+ and 9a, has added to that list with a redpoint of Victimes del futur (9a) in Margalef. (c) Jan Novak

I tried Futur for the first time the same day I sent zipayorik ez!! (8c). It was one try just to check out the moves — I did them all fairly quickly so I added it to my list! I had 5 climbing days left and wanted to try and manage this one and also try Coma Sant Pere (8c+). Luckily CSP went down quickly because turns out I needed a few extra days on Futur to solidify my beta in the crux which kept changing with conditions. In the end it took 5 days and I sent on my 4th try of my final day in Margalef — pretty magical!”
