Performance at Villanueva del Rosario, Spain06 May 2019
In Spain, the American Jonathan Siegrist solves La Planta de Shiva and also adds this 9b to his resume.
Villanueva del Rosario, Spain, here Jonathan Siegrist did of La Planta de Shiva thus climbing his second 9b almost a year after closing Jumbo Love in California. "The hardest part of climbing to your limit is to balance the emotions between the desire to want something so ardently and in a sense let it go and get rid of the pressure. Today I managed to find a sort of compromise on La Planta de Shiva. It was an absolute battle until the end and I will never forget it! As always, I leave a piece of heart in the chain."
Jon's is the fourth ascent of the route after Adam Ondra's FA in 2011 and the repeats by Jakob Schubert in 2016 and Angela Eiter in 2017, before and for now the only woman in having climbed a 9b.
