8c rope solo MP FA by Fabian Buhl
  2017-03-13 00:00:00    
Fabian Buhl has released the amazing news about his 8c rope solo FA of the 7 pitches Ganesha in Sonnenwand. It took the former 8C boulder some 20 days, totally by himself, to do it ground up adding just four bolts. (c) Stefan Schlumpf

His self-belay system involved an upside down Grigri and a lot of tricks and he took countless fall up to 18 meters. It took him four days just to reach the top. "Freeclimbing and taking big falls until I could fix myself to bolt it. Belays are bolted and then 4 bolts for protection rest is trad."

The FA was done last fall but he choose not to say anything until the amazing video was released and in regards if he has any new projects. "Yes, but about project I don't talk so much. But I like to bring my solo climbing to bigger mountains."

I have no idea how this self belaying technique works. It looks insane. Thats some serious stuff there.
