Mr Frankenjura himself, Markus Bock, has made the first ascent of Becoming, 9a+, at Burggrub, Frankenjura.
The new route is an alternative harder start to Markus' own The Elder Statesman, 9a, and had been a project of his since three years.
According to Markus, this it's one of his hardest routes ever, if not THE hardest. On his Top 100 Frankenjura-list, he ranks it as #2, between Corona and Alex Megos' recently opened Modified (which he hasn't done).
