Nu World 9a+/b FA by Jonathan Siegrist

Thursday, 15 October

Jonathan Siegrist has made the FA of Nu World at a remote new crag outside Las Vegas. In total, the 35-year-old has now done some 50 routes 9a to 9b, putting him as #6 in that list. In the annual 8a ranking game, he is #2. (c) Nate Liles

"All together I think I probably tried the route almost 50 times over 5 weeks. It took me many sessions to figure out the cryptic method through the bottom 7 bolts (it’s super resistant here - barely even a spot to clip, and absolutely no stopping for 30 moves). After this there is a small rest, and then for ‘Nu World’ you climb to the right and up another 25 meters of beautiful and hard climbing, maybe ~8c. The direct will go straight up for another 30+ meters and there are several very hard boulder problems with worse rests than on Nu World. I’m looking forward to trying it next season! But for now I need a break from the 90 minute approach... The direct finish will be crazy hard - if I can ever do the bottom again..."

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…

During the Bouldering World Championship in 2007, Daniel Dulac won the semifinal by flashing all four problems but in the final he did not do a single Boulder even if each of the other five finalists did three problems on average. Daniel said that it was extremely frustrating to hear the spectators …
