BÄMM … Jakob Schubert punktet Neanderthal (9b) in Santa Lynia

Hier der Insta Post von Jakob

I stuck the dyno!! 2nd ascent of Neanderthal [9b] in Santa Linya. A king line opened by Chris Sharma in 2009
On my first day working this 115 moves (!!) monster I thought it will take a while to be able to send. But I quickly made a lot of progress and today (my 6th day on the route) I stuck the crux move and kept it together until the top. Such a sick route!! Long routes like this take a lot of psychological effort but make the feeling of reaching the victory jug even more rewarding
I have to add that I used one kneepad for my ascent, actually the first time I ever send something hard with such a thing on, but it felt really useful. I did two knee bars on the route both would be more painful without it so I decided it‘s time.. 

Congrats Jakob Schubert !
