Three 8c+' by Jan Hojer

Thursday, 2 July

Jan Hojer, who has qualified to Tokyo 2021, has during the last few days done three 8c+' as well as one 8c in Frankenjura; I bleed back, Hattori Hanzo, Madonna 2nd go and Lake District, 2nd go. (c) Jan Novak

How was it possible to do all those routes so quickly and what about the WC’s in 2020?
I felt in good shape after the lockdown and took advantage of all the free time I had. None of the routes I did so far felt too close to my limit and as much as I enjoy climbing on different routes every day, I’m starting to feel like I could try something harder soon. I think I might compete in Briancon, mainly because I have a few routes nearby that I’d like to climb but I won’t be competing in Asia or America.
