Katherine Choong climbs her forst 9a doing Cabane au Canada
At Rawyl resolves her rock project for this year22 August 2018
The Swiss climber Katherine Choong climbed Cabane au Canada to Rawyl thus closing her first 9a. In 2013 Adam Ondra did it on sight and now also Katherine solved it, obviously afterwork, thus reaching the rank of true top climber.
"One of my goals this year was to climb a 9a, after falling three times on top of Era Vella, I decided to try Cabane, which is close to where I live. Thanks to how the World Cup competition have changed, I trained a lot in boulder and I found a solution for the upper part that had already put me in difficulty last year. This week was the last I could devote to the project and at the third attempt of the fourth day, every movement was fluid and I it seemed easier and I got to the chain just before dark. "
Among the previous achievements of Kathe there is Southern Smoke at Red River Gorge, 8c +, and a nice series of Spanish superclassic 8c as T1 Full Equip, La Fabelita, Mind Control and FishEye.
