Eleven 8c's by Jan Hojer

Saturday, 30 May

Jan Hojer, who has qualified for Tokyo 2021, has during the last two weeks done eleven 8c's in Frankenjura, out of which three second go.

Any thoughts of going for an 8c+ or even 9a :)?
Aren’t you the one that says building a base to your pyramid is important?! :-) When I was younger I did a lot of 8b+‘s in the Frankenjura and then skipped all the nice 8c‘s and 8c+‘s and did AD. I haven’t been back in almost ten years and right now I’m enjoying climbing on different routes every day, rather than focusing on just one or two projects. But don’t worry. I will take advantage of all the free time and try a few hard routes as well this year. Maybe I’ll have a few trips where I focus on onsight climbing too... but who knows. I’m loving the freedom of my empty schedule right now.

What about indoor and competition training like Speed?
I haven’t been inside for almost three weeks. But I go home in two days to focus on training for a little while and also add a couple of speed sessions to the mix.

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 …
