A Must-See Video of Olympic Champ Janja Garnbret Onsighting 5.14b

She made history earlier this month when she ticked two 5.14b onsights within a few days

Olympic gold medalist Janja Garnbret onsighted two 5.14b Oliana sport routes within a few days this fall. She’s now returned home, but a video by Fanatic Climbing has been published showing her second of the two.

First was the famous 50-metre-tall Fish Eye 5.14b which was the first-ever female onsight of the grade. Shortly after Fish Eye, Garnbret onsighted the neighbouring route American Hustle 5.14b. The first ascent was by Sam Elias in 2014. According to 8a.nu, Cedric Lachat is the only other climber on record to have onsighted Fish Eye and American Hustle.

Part of Garnbret’s warm-up for her second 5.14b onsight was climbing the lower section of La Dura Dura 5.15c. It’s reported that she stuck a crux dyno to a two-finer gaston. Sasha DiGiulian became the first woman to tick American Hustle back in 2018, watch the video below.
