30 unpublished 8B and harder by Klem Loskot


Thursday, 6 December

Klem Loskot (38) is a pioneer who has established famous FA's around the world since the mid 90-ies. The last three years he has been working under cover putting up 30 boulders 8B - 8C. "All the new stuff is south of Salzburg, in the northern Alpine foothills, very close to my home, spread out on several small cliffs, boulders and caves, sometimes just with 2-3 problem each place. It's all Limestone, as the norther Prealps in this region are Limestone. Most is not what i always expected, crimpy and sharp, but solide, nice to climb on full body style. Dessertfox (8C see picture) is on a wave like shaped, almost 45° overhanging 5 meter wall. Easy first sit start move on good holds and then flows into the hardest move, the shoulder-breaker." The full list is presented as a comment.
