Jakob Schubert was the first to repeat the Alasha deep-water soloing route in Mallorca in 2021. During the trip he also managed to climb the famous and spectacular Es Pontas route. We present the video of the trip and a personal report from the Austrian.
“I still get goosebumps when I look at the pictures of Alasha look," admits the record World Cup winner from Innsbruck. Also a good year and a half after the first repetition of Chris Sharma's Alasha and the successful ascent of Es Pontas device in Mallorca Jakob Schubert when thinking about the time on the Balearic island.
A personal report from Jakob Schubert
2021 was the most successful summer of my career and at the same time incredibly nerve-wracking. The first Olympic Games for our sport, my bronze medal, the world championship title in lead a few weeks later and the World Cup victory in Innsbruck before that.
Mischa (Michael Piccolruz) and I have been planning all summer and fortunately it really worked out. That was the coolest trip I've ever done - the perfect mix of really zach 'fanatic' and holiday feeling with a really cool crew and top-notch vibes.
The DWS experience was amazing! That I have the two difficult tours of Chris Sharma repeated in a single trip capped it all off. The two films – the first part below, the second part is coming next week – let me relive this emotional world again. The feeling of being so high above the water was something very special that you never feel in other disciplines.
This discipline is deep in my heart and I know that I want to do it even more in the future. By next year at the latest, I think it will be that time again. Maybe then it's back to the Olympics.
