This is how Jakob Schubert climbs the ultimate deep water solo test piece Es Pontas | Video

In autumn 2021, the Austrian professional climber Jakob Schubert repeated one of the most impressive deep water soloing routes in the world with Es Pontas (9a+) in Mallorca. Now the video of the inspection is outside - an absolute must-see.

"He can't be stopped. Jakob Schubert succeeds after success and serves the curiosity of the climbing scene on a weekly basis.» This fall 2021 headline is related to the repeat of the DWS line Es Pontas, but still applies today. The Austrian professional climber - in the meantime richer by two world championship titles - is still in top form. In keeping with the summer temperatures, we will take you on a little journey through time today and show you Jakob Schubert's inspection of Chris Sharma's Psicobloc test piece Es Pontas on Mallorca.
