Yes, Siegrist just managed to sneak this in ...

[...] needs graphs.



According to this exactly no one my height has climbed 9a+.

Which kind of makes me feel better. Or lazy.

Both.

Seb pretty dominant there. Odd to see a list like that without Ondra.

Didn't Sachi Amma do something hard recently?

Olympics I guess, but still two routes ≥ 9b in three months is good going by anyone's standard...

He became tall?


(Last time I read something was in 2017 when it was said (by Kevin Aglaé e.g.) that he was still very strong and climbed exceptionally well on long routes, and that he really disliked climbing media.)

For those who can stomach climbing gossip (and who cannot?), see comments to this: https://www.facebook.com/argrimpol/photos/a.1545558352126728/1846078702074690/

What a shame, I guess he finds the 'fame' side of top end climbing hard to deal with. i remember seeing him in 2012 at Gorges du Loup trying to do a sit start to Punt X, an already desparate 9a, (like trying to link Keen Roof into Evo or summat).

Maybe he should take a leaf ouf of Ondra's book:

Jonatan Flor has added the sitstart of Ali Hulk (sit start) to Ali Hulk (extension total) to make it Ali Hulk (extension total sit start) at 9b. This is his first 9b after having done two 9a+s (Ali Hulk (extension total) and No Pain No Gain). Source: https://fanatic-climbing.com/premier-9b-pour-jonatan-flor-first-9b-by-jonatan-flor/

Repeated by Jorge Díaz-Rullo the day after. https://www.instagram.com/p/B0oYkbGHv8I/

The average height of the 67 9a+ climbers that I have this information for is now 173 cm. I lack reliable data on 18/85  climbers who have reported an 9a+ ascent.

Jonathan Guadalcazar has done his first 9a+, Viaje Morfo, a link-up between Viaje Astral and Morfologi in Tarbena.

Spain now has 15 climbers who have claimed a 9a+ ascent, while USA has 17 and Germany 10.

 Ondra has made the second ascent of Qui in Tyrol. Graded 9a by FA, Ondra seems to suggest 9a/+.

9a/+ doesn't quite cut it. Also, I did not quite understand from that post + article in Grimper how much breakage affects the grade.

Loďc Zehani (17 years) has done his project in, Orgon, adding a harder exit version of his own route “Le Poisson pilote” 9a+  to create “Obsession” 9b.

I think the thinking goes a bit along the lines that virtually the rest of Orgon is drilled so what's a few drilled pockets between friends on this new one. A retrograde step IMO. (Its not clear whether these drilled holds are new or old.)
