09 Nov Jonathan Siegrist 9a FA
Few days ago the new about Ethan Pringle on the 9a of The golden ticket on Red River Gorge – Kentucky – Usa.
On Nov, 6th, Jonathan Siegrist has carried out on the same place the FA of "Pure Imagination" , suggesting grade 9a: he writes on his blog:
"As for a grade, which of course seems to be everyone’s chief concern, I have decided to suggest 5.14d. I base this suggestion on A) the relative difficulty of this route compared to the 14b’s and 14c’s at the Red I’ve done and B) how much effort it took me in comparison to Kryptonite (about the same number of tries at 12-15 or so). As with basically all new routes, an initial suggestion is only that – a suggestion. It could very well be easier or harder.. I’ll be very stoked to see it repeated."
