Episode 25 – Jonathan Siegrist

Jonathan Siegrist has built up an impressive tick list over the years. I first remember hearing about Jonathan in 2009 when he went on a tear in the Red River Gorge and redpointed seven 5.14 routes, sent three 5.13d routes, onsighted three 5.13c routes, and climbed 11 more routes ranging from 13a to 13b – all in a two week trip. Not bad. That year Jonathan got a ton of attention from the climbing media and won a Golden Piton Award for Breakaway Success from Climbing Magazine. Since then Jonathan has continued to put up and repeat many of the hardest lines in the country, if not the world. I met up with Jonathan at his place in Las Vegas and we talked about growing up in Madison, WI and Boulder, CO, why Las Vegas is such a great climbing city, and what being a professional climber means to him.
