Nataša 8A+ FA by Jana Vincourkova

Thursday, 27 May

Jana Vincourkova has done her fourth 8A+ during the last six weeks, Nataša in Babí lom. It is an 8A+ roof she made the FA of last month and this times she did it backwards, video. Noteworthy is that Jana restarted climbing 2.5 years ago after having taken a two years break. In the 8a ranking game, she is #6 after four girls from the USA and Oriane Bertone from France.

"It all started when my boyfriend wanted to repeat Izabela 8A+ which I made the FA of last month. I was sitting under the crag and watching him climb. Then he said that I could try to climb Izabela backwards to kill some time while I was waiting and I was like „Noo, it would be the same boulder, same moves..“ But later I tried it anyway and find out it's really hard and definitely much harder for me than Izabela. So I started to climb but wasn't able to do all the moves in a row and so the projecting began. It took me two long climbing days to sent this boulder and I have to say that the moves are so different and the whole problem takes much more endurance than Izabela. I called the boulder Nataša because I am very bad at naming new boulders so I just looked into the calendar whose name day was that day and it was Nataša. It's the same story with Izabela."

Debate/Jens: In trad climbing you are not allowed to have the gear or quickdraws in place and it was also like this in the beginning of the sport climbing era. Some ten years ago, you still had to place the draws if you were going to claim an onsight. The devaluation of ethics have continued and now…
