[VIDEO] Jonathan Siegrist on „Le Cadre Nouvelle“ (9a) in Ceuse

Jonathan Siegrist has been battling with this route, "Le Cadre Nouvelle" (9a) since he arrived in Ceuse in May 2015. For Jonathan it has a little taste of everything, some sections suited him really well and others were very demanding.

Jonathan Siegrist states on May 15th, 2015:

A classic power move kept me coming back again and again. I’m not a dynamic or snappy climber – it’s one of my glaring weaknesses – but the move was a brilliant challenge. From hanging it became easy, from just a few moves in it often felt impossible. This kind of movement, so low percentage and unpredictable, can resist for weeks.

The first time I stuck the move from the ground was on Wednesday and thankfully I punched it to the finish. With my timeline here winding down I felt quite nervous about this climb, especially the more I fell in love with it – the more I wanted it. I’m very excited to have done it, and furthermore to enjoy the last climbing days here.

For me this was a hard one and a memorable one. I learned a lot from this route.
