The Activator 9a by Jonathan Siegrist

Saturday, 10 April

JonathanSiegrist has made the first repeat of Joe Kinder's The Activator in Hurricave. "Hard as hell for me. I could conjure some excuses but in short it just felt hard!! 9a/+ for me no question. Wet chalk FTW!!" (c) Rachel Galipo

In total, the 35-year-old has done 53 routes 9a to 9b meaning he is #6 in the All-Time 9a list.
