Moritz Perwitzschky ticks Corona (9a+)

Moritz Perwitzschky, has added to the ten 9a's he's already done by redpointing, Corona (9a+) in Frankenjura. It was put up by Markus Bock in 2006 as the first 9a+ in Germany. In the picture, Moritz is doing Black Label (9a) which is the route next to Corona.

"It took me around 10-12 sessions over a few years, as I never felt strong enough, to really focus on it. This year I felt way better on the crux moves and climbed it in the 3rd session. The route consists of a short easy approach into a 6 move-boulder on very tiny holds, that are supposed to be around 8A+/8B...after that, you need to stay calm and focused for 10 more moves, probably around 8a/+."
