Spirit Quest 9a by Jonathan Siegrist

4 September 2022

Jonathan Siegrist has repeated Spirit Quest (9a) in Squamish, after a handful sessions. "Hateful conditions for the most part but the route is just so insanely good that I had to keep trying it! Truly one of the best granite sport climbs... on earth? Big respect to Tom for the vision and to Mike on the FA. Stoked to see that I can still climb tech!"

The 35m route was bolted by Tom Wright and it was Mike Foley who did the FA in 2021 and then Ben Harnden made the first repeat, shortly after. FA video

What is next?
Next, I’d like to do some classics around Squamish, both trad and sport! There are also some cool projects for me to try.
