Siegrist on Realization

Jonathan Siegrist went to Europe with a few goals in mind. One of the foremost was to climb the world’s first 9a+ in Céüse, France.

As Epic TV reporsts, Siegrist knew from the start that it wouldn’t be easy. Over the course of four weeks he worked the route and prepared himself mentally and physically by keeping his hype high, eating lots of hard-boiled eggs, and enjoying the French countryside. He was rewarded for his perseverance when he became only the eight person in history to send the line first imagined by Jean-Chrisophe Lafaille and first actualized by Chris Sharma – Biographie/Realization 5.15a/ 9a+.
