9aMarsupilamiKochel23 June, 20135
overall it is a nice line with hard boulder on the top.
9aOpen your mind r2Barcelona /  Santa Linya17 February, 20083
I am not sure if second pitch makes it harder altough it is not easy
9aUnder VibesArco /  Massone15 May, 20163
harder than Underground, hard 9a for sure, but for me not 9a+.
9aSenzaceKrkavka18 September, 20204
reclimbed after a hold broke, probably low-end 9a
9aThunder ribesArco /  Unknown Crag1 May, 20183
9aEra VellaMargalef /  La visera de la coma30 July, 20115
2nd GO way more pumped than in the onsight, but I somehow battled my way up
9aMade in PolandPodzamcze4 December, 20145
oh yeees,100th 9a and harder, took me 8 years to do them. This one was a special climb, completely vetical pocket climbing with super slippery footholds, especially if it is as cold as today! 3rd go, would have been second go if drone crash hadn't happened next to me on my second go
9aLife's Blood for DowntroddenFrankenjura /  Vergessene Welt30 October, 20095
2 days, strange and hard to figure out, but very cool route
9aSever The Wicked HandFrankenjura /  Hängender Stein28 October, 20135
tried two days before in severe humidity, now did it 1st go while clipping the draws in. 3rd 9a of the day, even though this one must be pretty soft
9aPunt'XNice /  Gorges du Loup26 October, 20083
I spent 3 days in summer and now did it second go! might be 9a+, very hard for 9a in my opinion, but 9a+??.. In this case, the slashgrade is the most relevant, natural except a few holds in the end
9aJungfrau MarathonInterlaken /  Gimmelwald4 October, 20165
Such a bummer not to have onsighted this one! Messed up the sequence so badly and continued to the top straight after the fall. Then sent the following morning in the full sun.
9aLa Sensación del BloqueValle de los Cóndores24 November, 20185
One day ascent.
Video available on my YouTube channel.
9aDuele la realidad R2Barcelona /  Oliana23 April, 20125
2nd GO fell off the last move of first pitch (8c+) in onsight, lowered myself down and sent it the next day, onsighting the second pitch. Frustrating end of the trip, failed to finnish off my ultimate project and revealing how close I was to onsight this thing.
9aCizí agentMoravský kras3 December, 20153
First Ascent crazy humid morning, but i crimped hard enough. Super specific route on micro holds in the vertical wall
9aUndergroundArco /  Massone19 April, 20143
4 goes in total. First try flash in 2011 - fell off from the top. 2012 - retro flash and fell off from the top. 2014 - retro onsight/flash (as I forgot the sequence) and fell off from the top. Sent 30mis later.
9aDer heilige GralFrankenjura /  Kolosseum12 September, 20095
Magical! Has not been dry since 2005! Maybe easy 9a, but way harder than most of other 8c+ in fj
9aHelloHell17 September, 20173
First Ascent Hell is project free!!!
9anorth starKilnsey2 May, 20105
4th go, normal 9a for tall peoplel, harder for short ones
9aIllusionistFlatanger27 May, 20135
First Ascent I bolted this unimpressive line by chance as I had my static rope already hanging with the intention to make bouldery 8a-b as a good way warm up fingers before the projects. It turn out to be much harder than expected. Mini route with some cool moves, better than looks.
9aFuck The systemBarcelona /  Santa Linya6 February, 20083
3.go, normal for grade I think
9aProcesorVisnove4 May, 20163
First Ascent. Pumpier finish to Proces in Los Brnos, 9a/a+.
Video available on my YouTube channel.
9aAthena NaturalArco / Massone4 September, 20203
Athena climbed without artificial holds (there are two - undercling chipped into the ball in the end of the roof, and the ball right above it). I almost did second go in 2018, then I broke a foothold on my 3rd try and then gave it maybe 15 tries over the last 2 years?! In the end, I found better beta and did it today while being tired and with approaching darkness.
Video available on my YouTube channel.
9aTCTGravere11 July, 20143
nice satisfaction after the lost Chamonix World cup. A tribute to Tito Traversa first ascended by Stefano Ghisolfi
9aPuro DreamingArco /  Massone23 February, 20183
First Ascent
9aRainshadowMalham17 May, 20115
Honestly one of the best climbs I have done, only Raindogs could be less polished
9aThe EssentialFrankenjura /  Luisenwand28 October, 20095
3 days, on the top climbed directly without right crack from Kaum Zeit zum atmen
9aThe House of ShockFrankenjura /  Rotenstein28 October, 20133
2nd GO tough bouldering on tiny holds... 2nd 9a of the day, the hardest of the three
9aCampo con corviSardinia /  Domusnovas20 October, 20085
First Ascent Yes! 2 days
9aLittle BadderFlatanger22 August, 20165
Finally got to do this exit too...
9aAssassinSmith Rocks (OR) /  Unknown Crag9 November, 20183
2nd GO 2nd ascent, crazy route with different sections and good rests in between.
Video available on my YouTube channel.
9aJoe-citaBarcelona /  Oliana20 April, 20125
First Ascent first go, link up of Joe Blau and Marroncita. Most of the climb was onsight or flash, except the end of second pitch of Marroncita (8b)
9aClassifiedFrankenjura /  Holzgauer Wand28 September, 20153
2nd GO 9a/a+? so close on Modified after the ascent of Classified, such a bummer. nice to be outside after unlucky Puurs. Feeling strong.
9aNapalm in the MorningVienna /  Adlitzgraben15 March, 20143
Brilliant line, but it all comes down to two single moves. FA by Berni Fiedlernsome years ago, some holds have broken since then supposedly and hasn't been reclimbed. It could be harder than the neigbouring Erfolg ist trainierbar,but I have no clue about the grade of that one either. Maybe just hard 8c+.
9aHadesInnsbruck /  Nassereith23 August, 20095
9 goes in total, hard for me, a few chipped holds but quite good route, props to Patxi for 2nd go ascent later in the day!
9aFlammen InutiFlatanger6 August, 20175
First Ascent suprisingly good addition to the cave. Start like Elden Inuti, before the last bolt of the first pitch keep going right and low. Then join Halibut. With the anchor at the first pitch of Elden Inuti 8c+/9a.
9aTanec kuřátekJáchymka, Mor.kras30 March, 20105
First Ascent crazyy! narrow but long cave with tricky moves. After bouldery start, pumpy climbing follows difficult chimney where only your calfs are getting pumped, test of my new drill successful :-)
9aHakuna MatataMilano /  Cubo18 April, 20133
3rd go, pumpy
9aLa novena enmiendaBarcelona /  Santa Linya5 February, 20085
my birthday, without rest in hole 9a+, with the rest it is not much harder than Traversia de la Enmienda
9aProcesVisnove4 May, 20163
very happy to send it despite humid and greasy conditions
9aBeginningArco /  Eremo di San Paolo3 September, 20203
2nd GO Very resistant climbing. I found a kneebar and that made the route less bumpy, which might make it only 9a. Checked the moves and did it next go. But I had done St Anger in the past and tried Zauberfee before.
Video available on my YouTube channel.
9aLa prophétie des grenouillesFournel11 July, 20145
2nd GO ALMOST second 9a onsight in one day! broke a hold after the crux!
9aRetour GagnantAvignon /  St Léger31 January, 20185
First Ascent Done with a headlamp in the end of the day. Waiting for the big projects to dry up, hopefully...
9aEcholokaceBýčí skála, Mor.kras17 October, 20105
First Ascent The weirdest boulderproblem ever! Great line and moves though!
9aPanteraFrankenjura /  Schneiderloch10 October, 20095
4 days, two falls from last hard move
9aPurgatoryHell21 July, 20135
First Ascent one day last year, second go this year. Perfect power endurance route
9aWeiße RoseInnsbruck /  Schleier Wasserfall13 September, 20085
Yess! very solid for that grade in my opinion, with good conditions much better, maybe 9a+ I do not know
9aValhallaFlatanger29 July, 20165
First Ascent Odins Eye extension, all the way to the final rail of Thor's. Incredibly massive pitch of ultra tiring climbing, at least 65 meters. Possibly one of the harder 9a's, but not 9a+. Bolted by Joe Kinder
9aDirecta BongadaBarcelona / Margalef23 November, 20204
First Ascent. Start like Directa Rodellar, finish in Bongada. It is link-up, but honestly, as a line it is the most direct and logical one. You do all the hard part from Directa Rodillar 8c+/9a, good kneebar and all the upper part of Bongada. Unfortunately the kneebar is too good to make any harder than hard 9a, maybe 9a/+, but definitely not 9a+. 1st real try after both Directa Rodillar and Bongada, in the very last minutes of the day.
9aMacedonian TripMavrovo16 October, 20185
First Ascent Project bolted by Klemen Becan in 2014. Amazing tufa line, almost 50 meters of perfection. 3 goes
9aBiologicoArco /  Unknown Crag8 April, 20123
First Ascent 1 day ascent, bolted by Loris Manzana
9aWitchhammerFlatanger26 August, 20155
First Ascent 2nd GO A new line bolted by Adam Pustelnik. Starts with a first few bolts of Nordic Flower and goes left, crossing Thors Hammer in the roof and going into the Brunhilde for the final crux. Really fun climbing, different sections with rests in between, never easy. Flatanger at its best.
9aTodos los santosRoc Galliner6 February, 20145
First Ascent Amazing line to the left Ni Blog Ni Facebook. Slightly overhanging face on crimps. Unique place totally worth the hike. 3 goes. Bolted by David Gambus
9aOmEndstal14 June, 20095
6 goes, 2 days, beautiful climbing in rather alpine type of rock, props to Alex
9aLa Terza EtaCamaiore21 April, 20175
First Ascent 4 goes, ultra tired and ultra fight, but somehow I did not fall...
9aA MuerteSiurana /  Can Piqui Pugui4 March, 20103
3 tries 2010,2 2008, easy 9a, but harder that 8c+
9aPalestinaCuenca13 February, 20135
such a bummer not onsight it, but shit happens. Next time I can more lucky
9aPerla východuMoravský kras16 September, 20075
First Ascent very hard, nice and tricky. Yeaaaaah!
9aMoreMedveja26 March, 20165
First Ascent What a day! 3rd go, very intricate climbing on small holds and big moves
9aMiaVranjača25 July, 20205
First Ascent Amazing 50m line in an amazing cave close to Paklenica. Hard to say about the grade, after 25m of 8a/a+ you get into resistant section with weird crux which I think suits my style, even though after having worked the moves it is max 8c+. Possibly 8c+/9a. 3rd go.
9aIraBilbao /  Baltzola10 May, 20145
First Ascent shares the artificial start with Tas Tas, then goes straight via some funky moves in between stalactites. bolted by Patxi, humidity
9aLa Teoria del GestoRome /  Sperlonga21 December, 20173
First Ascent Climb most of Grandi Gesti, keep left all the way to the Cavalieri Selvaggi anchor. Unfortunately good kneebar before the final crux, which is reachy and all about srrange fingerlock
9aLe Cadre Nouvelle VersionProvence /  Céüse5 September, 20105
First Ascent 2nd go this year, 1 try five years ago of that 8c
9aIm Reich des ShogunBasler Jura30 September, 20095
2nd ascent after Eric Talmadge (props to him), 2 days, 5 tries, amazing structure of rock
9aCabane au CanadaSion/SW /  Rawyl9 July, 20135
Long-term dream came true when I did not even expect it. I travelled to this incredible area, thinking that the route would be pretty dirty and abandoned after a long winter, but I found it perfectly cleaned with the draws hanging in. I admit that it is definitely not hard 9a, it definitely rather lower end, but it fits my style, I felt in very decent shape and I fought hard! For the first time in my life, I onsighted a route which had been suggested 9a and I could honestly believe that it could be in the 9a region. For all the others it was simply not case, even though it is very hard to judge it while you are onsighting. Beautiful moment and experience in the early morning session in some of the most breathtaking sportclimbing-wall I have ever seen.
9aAction DirecteFrankenjura /  Waldkopf19 May, 20085
the masterpiece
9aSuper FinaleSion/SW /  Rawyl17 July, 20163
First Ascent Hyper Finale and half way up into Etoile de Maya.
9aEl PotroBarcelona / Margalef26 November, 20204
First Ascent. Start like Bumaye, then go straight up. Really good short power endurance.
9aInterklemezzoKanjon Tijesno22 September, 20183
First Ascent Amazing wall in Bosnia close to Banja Luka. It was bolted by Peter Schwamberger and during two days at Chill&Drill Fest I made the first ascent. First pitch is 8b+, then hard boulderproblem into technical finish. More projects waiting
9aTo tu jeste nebyloLabák18 March, 20125
First Ascent Together with Ondra Benes opened ground up this line which had been initially bolted from the top by Germans who adittionally chipped two holds. The bolts were chopped off and the line abandoned as it was. Awesome sustained climbing
9aBrunhilde low startFlatanger25 August, 20155
First Ascent A new line to the left of Thors Hammer bolted by Elliot Ashe. Has a jumar start and it is probably at hard 8c, but with the start from the groung through the crux of Thors Hammer, it is a good 9a for sure. Unfortunately fell from my onsight from the jumar start, then refreshed the moves in TH and then sent it in the sun!
9a9gGemona14 December, 20133
First Ascent 2nd GO a bit of old-school chipping, but really fun to climb! Super continuous, like comp route. But there are more walls in the regions, need to come back!
9aLos RevolucionariosKalymnos /  Odyssey25 May, 20095
6 tries, 3 days, big moves on strange holds, depens on conditions and your height
9aperfect man 2.0Albenga /  Castelbianco20 April, 20175

9aFabela pa la enmiendaBarcelona /  Santa Linya31 January, 20105
1 go, big fight in the end of the day with wet holds and bad memory fro two years ago in Enmienda
9aSouthern Smoke DirectRed River Gorge (KY) /  Bob Marley29 October, 20125
Hard to believe it, but it is true! two dazs ago felt bad, didn't know what to climb as I wanted to save onsights/flashes for another year, and now this came! thanks everyone for the beta and good vibes, moment I will never forget. Everything went so perfect. 9a benchmark I'd say.
9aAbyssNice /  Gorges du Loup1 August, 20075
3.GO,not sure about grade,maybe 8c+/9a I dont know
9aBI HERRI, BORROKA BATLa cova de l'ocell20 February, 20165
2nd GO One really morpho boulderproblem followed by technical topout. Hard to give it a grade too. Easier the taller you are. Must be incredibly hard for Ramon, hats off!
9aGenius LociZadar /  Paklenica23 July, 20205
First Ascent Left start into Il Maratoneta. Adds very cruxy srart into the Maratoneta. Probably like short 8c/c+ into the crux of Maratoneta.
Video available on my YouTube channel.
9aPsikoterapiaBilbao /  Valdegobia7 May, 20143
power endurance
9aClimb FreeNezer Cave30 November, 20175

Video available on my YouTube channel.
9aPPPNice /  Verdon7 August, 20105
First Ascent The line of the cave, though the climbing is not as nice as Pull Over. Not sure about the grade, probably harder than Pull Over, but maybe I am wrong because I did in the end of the day
9aAlohaKronthal27 September, 20093
2 days, akward roof climbing, the hardest route on sandstone?
9aMaitre Vauban und der BasiliskVienna /  Höllental30 June, 20135
this route very nice to climb! Different sections and some rests in between. Slipped 2nd go from the last move, 3rd go was all right
9aUnpluggedFrankenjura /  Hardcorewändchen1 May, 20085
finally! so hard for for me! 5days?, took me the most time like no other
9aBlack LabelFrankenjura /  Schneiderloch13 July, 20163
2nd GO 25mins
9aVictimas PerezMargalef / Finestra30 November, 20203
My nightmare, tried a few days back in 2015, a few days this trip, usually tired and when conditions were too bad for Perfecto. Today sent with severe humidity.
9aTierra de NadieJuncosa3 November, 20205
2nd GO suprisingly really good route, tensiony moves in a horizontal roof with legendary finish. Definitely kneepads make the route easier, probably soft 9a with kneepads. Props to Dani.
Video available on my YouTube channel.
8c+Super AleVerona /  Covolo22 April, 20095
an existing project, too hard for 8c, thus easy 8c+
8c+L'AvaroTetto di Sarre13 July, 20111
made me happier after unsuccessful comp in Chamonix even though it is from 90% manufactured
8c+Necessary evilVRG24 February, 20155
2nd GO Should have definitely onsighted this one. Amazing one!
8c+Blut und HonigVienna /  Höllental1 October, 20190
A route which is very hard to grade. It is long but has many good rests, and the real difficulty is the low percentage crux way low down. Orginally graded 9a, I think it could be either 8c or 8c+.
8c+Volle Kraft vorausFrankenjura /  Winterleite22 September, 20075
finally, great
8c+Yala FactorNezer Cave3 December, 20175
First Ascent Amazing project from Ofer on the right side of the cave. He was so close to make FA on this trip, thanks Ofer for letting me try it! One of the best in the cave

super guapa, but being flexible, it could be a little easier... 9a was postponed due to terrible humidity...I will be back
8c+Airva eseBarcelona /  Camarasa24 April, 20125
2nd GO could be 9a quite easily
8c+SciddicaSan Vito lo Capo /  Unknown Crag7 May, 20165
First Ascent very humid and it was a fight for life, but hard to give it a grade. Have no clue how it feels like with good temps
