Southern Smoke 8c+ by Solveig Korherr

NUMBERS

16 November 2019

Solveig Korherr, an active competition climber until 2017 who had a personal best of 8b+ just seven months ago, has done her first 8c+, Southern Smoke in Red River Gorge. The last month she has done 14 routes 8a and harder and she is #1 in the 8a ranking game. (c) Billy Simek How can you explain your great progress in 2019? I have climbed a lot more outdoors in the past two years, but I have still been maintaining a high level of training discipline. I have gotten a lot better at projecting, in terms of dogging routes but also tactically projecting. Building my pyramid of grades over the last couple of years has boosted my self-confidence. I find that this is especially helpful when I approach harder redpoint goals. I also feel especially well-prepared for this trip to North America because I had an intensive six-week training cycle.
