Janja Garnbret climbs her first 9a at Santa Linya in Spain


Slovenian climber Janja Garnbret has redpointed her first 9a sports climb, Seleccio Natural at Santa Linya, Spain.

Janja Garnbret, the prodigious Slovenian climber who often seems to be in a league of her on in climbing competitions, is obviously also a phenomenal climber outdoors. During the few moments she climbs at the crags, the 18-year-old pro has managed to amass 8b onsight, 8c flash and 8c+ redpoint, and she has now taken her game one notch higher by sending her first 9a, Seleccio Natural at Spain’s Santa Linya.

It’s worth noting that in mid-September the winner of the Arco Rock Legends 2017 fell off the last hard move of the 9a+ Biographie at Céüse before having to dash home, while the day before Seleccio Natural she sent the 8c+ Open your Mind. Since these repeats have been reaped at the start of her holiday in Catalonia, and that she required just 5 attempts spread out over 2 days to send Seleccio Natural, it seems a safe bet that there’s much more in store soon.
