Pure Dreaming Plus 9a+ by Alex Ventajas

Saturday, 30 October

Alex Ventajas has done his first 9a+, Pure Dreaming plus (9a+) in Arco. (c) Diego Borello

"After doing “Underground” and “Pure dreaming,” I thought about trying the connection between the two lines, but I preferred to consolidate the grade doing few more routes around 8c+ and 9a before trying a 9a+. This lasts weeks I felt en real good shape and I went to Pueblo in Arco to start climbing again on the routes, remembering the moves and trying the part that connects the two. Step by step, without rush and keeping climbing others “short-term project”.

After doing “Reini’s Vibes” quite quickly I thought: why not start give real tries to my biggest project from the start? After seven attempt (four days) In total, I managed to get to the top of the route, doing my first 9a+. Of course I already knew most of the moves, so the process was quite short, but this line needs very focused mind and great endurance. I loved to climb it and I think it’s a good way to debut in the grade."
