Jon Siegrist Sends New 5.15a in Nevada

He's now climbed 47 routes from 5.14d to 5.15b

Jon Siegrist has made the first ascent of One Hundred Proof at Mount Potosi in Nevada. It’s his 10th 5.15a to date. He has recently made the first ascent of Smoke Wagon 5.14d. He has nearly 50 sends of 5.14d or harder.

He sad, “I’ve been inching my way higher and higher on this monstrous route over the last two weeks, but the process really started over a month ago trying hard on its easier sibling Smoke Wagon.”

In 2018, he repeated Jumbo Love 5.15b on Clark Mountain and in 2017, he sent Pachamama 5.15a/b, Joe Mama 5.15a and Chaxi 5.15a all in three weeks.

I’ve been inching my way higher and higher on this monstrous route over the last 2 weeks, but the process really started over a month ago trying hard on its easier sibling ‘Smoke Wagon’. Yesterday I finally hung on for the ride and took this bastard to the chains! ‘One Hundred Proof’ 15a is one of the hardest routes I’ve climbed in quite a while. Just as I started to really stress the time pressure, it feels SO relieving to wrap this up. Now only one week left until we’re off to 🇮🇹!! • keep your eyes peeled for an @epictvclimbing video part on this route from @orographic_visual also featuring the King @andy_raether 🙌🏽 • @arcteryx @lasportivana @metoliusclimbing @maximropes @climbonproducts @physivantage
