Un 9a di placca per Paige Claassen

Dall'articolo del numero 98 di Pareti

L‘americana superspecializzata in placca Paige Claasen, già intervistata su Pareti numero 98, ha strappato un’ltra grossa via nello stile che preferisce. Si tratta di “Algorithm” 9a, 40 metri di pura intuizione di Jonathan Siegrist attraverso una delle lavagne dei Fins, un posto incredibile al confine tra Idaho e Wyoming, poco distante da un posto che si chiama…. Arco! Una specie di destino verticale dei nomi…

The American superspecialized in slabs Paige Claasen, already interviewed on Pareti number 98, has ripped another big route in the style that she prefers. It is “Algorithm” 9a, 40 meters of pure intuition by Jonathan Siegrist through one of the Fins blackboards, an incredible place on the border between Idaho and Wyoming, not far from a place called …. Arco! A sort of vertical destiny of names …

Yesterday was a big surprise – made the second ascent of Algorithm, my goal for September! Fueled by $4 Pocatello food truck burritos, I spent 6 days whittling down the intricate footwork of Alogrithm, in addition to 2 days in May. What a rad line. Shallow pockets, delicate feet, and a few big spans add up to 40 meters of thought provoking climbing. Luckily I had @arjandekock and my friends cheering me on, as I very nearly fumbled the top "coral reef". But @tarakerzhner (whose photo you might rather look at than read this lengthy caption) told me to be a tropical fish, so I took her advice and swam to the chains. Luckily this was more of a dry ocean, as I'm relatively afraid of water. I think I was just as tired mentally as physically when I reached the chains – my absolute favorite style of climbing. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Thanks for the vision @jonathansiegrist, such an incredible line up a very blank wall. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 📸 @tarakerzhner
