Jonathan Siegrist repeats Goldrake 9a+ at Cornalba, Italy

by

American rock climber Jonathan Siegrist has repeated Goldrake, the 9a+ established in 2010 by Adam Ondra at Cornalba in Italy.

After Andonno where he repeated several high-end climbs including the 9b Lapsus and the rarely repeated Mistero 8c+/9a, American climber Jonathan Siegrist visited another historic crag in northern Italy, Cornalba above Bergamo, where he repeated Goldrake

Located on Cornalba’s impressive east face, this famous pitch was bolted years ago by the crag local Bruno Tassi "Camos", and freed in 2010 by the then 17-year-old Adam Ondra who graded it 9a+. A number of repeats have ensued, including Gabriele Moroni (2014), Stefano Carnati (2016), Stefano Ghisolfi (2016), Silvio Reffo (2016) Luca Bana (2019) and Francesco Castellano (2020), and now after only four days of attempts Siegrist has also sent this technical gem.



"It’s pretty unusual how there are no good holds for so long" Siegrist told planetmountain.com. "It’s not necessarily one of my hardest, but it’s a super good route. I’m psyched."
