Tigris sit 8B+ by Michaela Kiersch

6 June 2022

Michaela Kirsch continues to strike in Magic Wood and, besides two more 8As, she has sent Tigris sit (8B+) after some four sessions. In total, the newly graduated doctor in occupational (hand) therapy has during less than three weeks in Magic done 16 boulders 8A to 8B+. During the last year, she has also done one 8c+ and her first 9a as well as another handful of 8A to 8B boulders. (c) Nina Williams

When was the last time you trained indoors or had some specific physical training?
I haven’t trained since May 4. I left the states for the Roc trip May 5.

How often have you taken rest days in Magic?
I’ve been climbing 1-2 days on and then a rest day. I haven’t taken more than one rest day in a row, but my body is starting to feel tired and I could probably use a few days of recovery!
