When I strated climbing in the mid eighties, we were really proud and would show off when we managed to climb a “5b”. Our heroes were Stepahn Glowacz or Edlinger who would go on 7a’s then 7b’s, even 7c’s… we were the climbing hippies, from french Gorges du Verdon to Yosemite, all we did was about climbing, we were young. Some of us got fat, others, like me stopped climbing…(and got fat…) so when I saw Jonathan Siegrist in that amazing 9a+… after six weeks of hard work and achieving it at it’s 30 th attempt…I wished I had kept on climbing…
