The Never Ending Story (8B+/V14) ✅ Happy to have strung together this life tick on a short 3 day excursion to Magic Wood. Before heading down to Switzerland, I was also able to take down The Last Rites (8c+) in the Frankenjura, so this week is definitely my most productive climbing week ever. Never Ending Story is a proper marker of my progression as a climber over the years. The full line is split into two parts around a “jug” in the middle, a power endurance 8A+/V12 compression testpiece on water polished slopers from the ground to the jug and then a 8A from the jug to the top with a powerful first move. On my first trip to the wood in 2016 I climbed my first crimpy 8Bs but couldn’t do either of the parts. I returned in 2018 and managed part 2 with some effort and sent part 1 after a whole session of falling on the last move. Last year, after sending New Base Line, I put a session of work into the full line but was a long way off the link. This year I returned to try and finish it off, but after 3 months of training on a head high board full of crimps I was worried that I would have no chance on the power-endurance sloper style. Fortunately, I was able to put it down on the first go of my second session after a mammoth 6 hour session the day before. 4 years ago this climb was impossible, and it felt like it would always be impossible. It was everything I was weak at. This is more proof to me that training really works, and the weaknesses that defined my climbing for years are starting to become strengths. It’s not a quick process, but with the right determination and commitment the change is inevitable. On to the next! Thanks to @fyfeeboywonder for the snap 👊

Creature from the Black Lagoon V16. Not really sure what to say about this one. The past few weeks have been busy, with not a ton of climbing and lots of ups and downs. After being forced to close @theboulderfield again due to a surge in COVID cases in California ☹️, I jumped in the car and headed to Colorado to join @marymeck who was already in the Front Range for work. I’ve been mostly laying low but getting up to RMNP a fair bit when time and weather allow. I’ve tried Creature a few days in the past, some short sessions, and it felt attainable but would require a lot of days and effort. Roof climbing isn’t typically my style, but I was looking forward to improving that aspect of my climbing, so I started trying Creature last week. First session went well, doing all the moves individually, but linking through the crux section felt almost impossible. Second session a few days later was some of the worst conditions I’ve experienced in Chaos. Hot and no moving air. No progress was made and the session ended quickly. Yesterday was my third session and although conditions were still not favorable I felt ok in the crux bit and started trying from the bottom. After a few goes falling midway through the crux I started feeling pretty tired and started packing up my things. A light breeze picked up even though it was still warm and I resolved to give it one last go. To my surprise I climbed all the way to the top. It was slightly anticlimactic and left me feeling more confused by the whole process than anything. Regardless I’m stoked to progress within the style. As for the grade, I really don’t know. I’m not climbing on enough things these days to give a good opinion. Video soon. As always, thanks to @blackdiamond, @fiveten_official and @frictionlabs for the support.

ILL TRILL [8B+] at #magicwood ✅ . another „little“ 2year-nemesis in the bag 😜🥳😜 . super happy about this one :)) super cool, funky and powerful #climbing - loved the process in this one again. back in time i watched @berndzangerl dryfiring off the last move when it was still his project (with WAY too hard straight beta - 8C his way for sure!!!). . at first - as always - i couldn’t do a single hard move . but after putting in the time and effort i finally forced it into submission - as always one could say... just with a bit (lot) more effort needed then anybody else - but may i learned (a lot) more then everyone else in the process - and may it really isn’t so much about „the send“ but about the journey leading to it?! 😳🧐🤯😜🤟 . even though this one was supposed to be „my style“; big moves with heelhooks... - it actually wasn’t so much 🙈 - it kept shutting me down on the last two moves for so many days, whatever i tried - it never felt felt „in the box“. and i did struggle with the transition-move into the standstart. i just didn’t had the crimp-#power for that funky one-arm-pogo-move. . . it was also super hard to get good conditions in that little cave; it normally was just too humid or i was somewhere else when it was good. . i had been able to do the crux from the 8B-stand in 10different ways - but kept falling coming from the sit! sliding heels/toes in the crux (not flexible enough!!!) - and a LOT of dry- and wet-firings... . coming back this spring after the #lockdown i immediately could feel the benefit off the extra-crimp-power i had gained over the winter (despite weighing 7kg more then last year!!!) . i still fell twice in the last moves - but then managed to take it down... 🥳 . once again #power was the answer - not #carrots 💪😜🤟 - and good times with good people 🤗🙌🙏 . onto the next #nemesis 💪🔥👊😜 . .

Schleier Wasserfall is one of my all-time favourite crags. It sits high above the valley in the picturesque landscape under monumental cliffs of Wilder Kaiser. It is also home to most of the hardest first ascents by Alex Huber @alexander_huberbuam . Alex put up a few routes that belonged to the very hardest at that time. Om 9a (world’s second ot third 9a, depending on Hubble) in Berchtesgaden FA in 1992 (the only repetition by me in 2009) Weisse Rose 9a in Schleier Wasserfall FA in 1994 (repetition by me in 2009, 2nd repetition by @jakob.schubert this year) Open Air (original grade 9a) 9a+ in Schleier Wasserfall FA in 1996 (the only repetition by me in 2008) In 2001, Alex put up Orca 8c+ in the upper tier of Schleier. I tried it in 2008 and then 2009 and could not the crux move, that revolves around pulling from poor right hand pocket far into the distant jug (see photo of Alex). Alex recommended trying his project that goes from the same pocket to the right (my picture), adding quite a lot of hard climbing, but skipping the brutal move. I made the FA of this project calling it Fugu 9a in 2009, and later it was repeated by @roland_hemetzberger In 2017, I found myslef in Schleier again, I repeated another 9a called Mongo and same day we went to take a look again at Orca together with Roland. I found a new beta skipping this pocket and opting for left-hand almost non-existent hold instead. I could not send that day, but I finally returned last week and repeated this “last Alex’s unrepeated sport route” and suggesting an upgrade to 9a. It is possible that over the years, a few spikes might have crumbled inside the right-hand pocket making the Alex’s beta harder, on the other hand, kneepads allowed me to rest right underneath the crux in no-hand-rest. Props to Alex fo putting all these amazing routes and I encourage all strong guys to check his routes out. Especially Om and Weisse Rose are gems that deserve more attention!

MOON LANDING, First Ascent • The ultimate project of the last sector at Passo della Presolana! The full line following the pillar from the bottom! 65 movements on a perfect grey limestone ending with a heinous final traverse to the left, with a crazy sequence on small crimps and poor feet that requires a really good hip mobility! • When I visited this crag 3 years ago I instantly realized I would love it! Pockets, bouldery routes, good limestone were definitely what I was looking for. After climbing most of the brilliant routes put up by @bernardorivadossi and @_lucabana_ , I was very psyched for this project, but the first time I decided to check out the moves on the last traverse I really had no clue how to climb it and soon got cold feet, until last year when I found the solution that worked best for me! But the crux being the very last move certainly didn’t help and dealing with the pump when coming from the ground was definitely another story... After another six days of work this year and some slips and falls on the traverse, last saturday, with a cold breeze blowing, I could luckily perform my landing on the 🌒 • HUGE thanks to @_lucabana_ and @bernardorivadossi for bolting all these outstanding lines and giving me the chance to try! • Regarding the grade I go for 9a... Hard! Other lunar missions will be carried out🧑‍🚀 • @camp1889 @scarpaspa @dfsportspecialist @rockexperienceofficial @ragnidilecco @asd_ragnidilecco @skillsrls
