Watch one of the best sport climbers in the world style a steep route outside Las Vegas in this new cut from La Sportiva.

Pro climber Jonathan Siegrist really is living his best life these days. After a spell of sending routes well into the elite grades over in Europe, he’s back home in good old Southern Nevada. And his send wagon shows no signs of stopping.

In this fresh footage, Siegrist spiders his way up “The Day the Earth Stood Still” (5.14c/d), a steep-steep stunner line in the La Madre Mountains. To put it gently, Siegrist looks like he’s in pretty good shape. (We’ve made 5.11 look a lot harder.)

For a lesson in focused stoke as only JS can deliver, hit play.

Runtime: 6 minutes
