Jonathan Siegrist is back from climbing in Europe and after taking time off with an injury he hops on his project, Insurrection 8c/5.14b/c at Independence Pass, CO. The route has several sections where he's forced to get super stretched out and then violently cut his feet, all of which can potentially spit him off. Even he's surprised when he clips bolt after bolt, ending up at the final boulder problem and actually-quite-hard anchor clip. Breathing heavy at 11k feet, he clips the chains. "I was Pretty surprised," says Siegrist. "It's a hard route and I really had not been climbing outside more than 2 days in the past 5 or 6 weeks - since Europe. But my injury had forced me to train and stay diligent about sleep and taking care of myself. Regardless, I was very stoked. It felt good to send hard after the injury at Wild Iris. For me, I'd say 14b is accurate. And the pitch is outstanding." Jonathan Siegrist Climbs The Old School Crimpfest 'Insurrection' (8c/5.14b) | Nomad, Ep. 4
