Interview: Jan Hojer on His Third Ascent of “Es Pontas” (5.15a Deep Water Solo)
I think in total I must have tried it for like six or seven weeks, probably 30 days climbing on it. Maybe four times a day, so easily over 100 tries. It’s really hard to tell. I think Chris and Jernej agreed on something around 9a+ [5.15a]. It’s hard to separate the difficulty of the route from how hard it is to try. I guess I’d call it 9a+, but I don’t know… it’s so much easier to work a 9a+ on a rope.
