Agnes Buen 9a FA by Thilo Schroeter

Thilo Schroeter, #11 in a Boulder WC this spring, has made the FA of Agnes Buen 9a in Sørkedalen outside Oslo, which was bolted 25 years ago. (c) Henning Wang

"I worked on the route for about five days two years ago, and now close to ten days this autumn. The route is short and climbs up an 15 degree face. The crux revolves around holding an undercling that explodes your biceps, then getting your feet onto very high and terrible footholds, and reaching up to a very strange sloped V-slot with the middle finger hooking onto a tooth. Ten moves of 8A+ boulder lead up to the crux, and the crux sequence which starts with the move explained above is a very low percentage 8A boulder. From there another 7B boulder before an easy top slab. 9a is my grade suggestion." More info on his Insta.
