Jonathan Siegrist - new 9a, 3 kbJonathan Siegrist has been a huge force for bringing the mythical 5.14d (9a) grade to the U.S., where it has been relatively rare compared to Europe.

Nice video, the climbing looks awesome. Good to see a hard line that's not as overhanging as it is high.

Yep, nice little film. Being crap at anything overhanging, it's actually far more "relatable" for me too compared to most hard sport vids. It might only be a 6b+ for me, but that feeling of snatching between holds knowing that if you don't hit it you just can't stay in balance is familiar.

Americans do speak funny though! :)

Located in the extreme southern tip of the Lost River Range just southwest of Howe lie the Fins. Highlighted by vertical-to-slightly-overhung pocketed limestone that rivals Sinks Canyon in Lander, Wyo., the Fins is truly a unique climbing area to eastern Idaho.

In reply to UKC News: Most enjoyable sport climbing footage I've seen for a good while. Agree with the above - although way out of my league, it's more 'relateable'.
