You have to see this crazy double hook | Video

In August, Jonathan Siegrist managed the red point ascent of the Kinder Cakes (9a +) route in Rifle. This video not only shows his solid ascent, but a crazy double hook.

Once again mellow published a classic uncut video. The high-resolution images show the first iteration of the route Children's cakes by the American Jonathan Siegrist in detail.

Two things are interesting about the video or the inspection: winner the route climbs exceptionally slowly and statically. In complete contrast to most athletes who are at this level. Best example is Adam Ondra, which climbs remarkably fast the higher the difficulty level of a route. Another very interesting detail is the double hook that Siegrist uses on one resting position.

While Siegrist is very static and controlled over most of the route and makes good use of every resting position, it still gets tight towards the end and you get the impression that he only reached the deflector with a bang and bang. All in all, once again an impressive uncut video in the best quality to cheer for.
