Jakob Schubert has made the third ascent, after Chris Sharma (2013) and Adam Ondra (2016), of Stoking the fire, 9b, at Santa Linya, Catalonia.

This was the third of the grade for Jakob after Sharma's Fight or flight (2014) at Oliana and Ondra's Planta de shiva (2016) at Villanueava del Rosario.

Once again I enjoyed to whole process of trying something hard a lot. It feels like I could have send this one much faster but this way I learned some more lessons again and an ascent always feels even better if it took a bit of a psychological battle as well.
