Andreas Hofherr makes quick work of the 8c+ trad line, Into the Sun

Andreas Hofherr has made the third ascent of Bernd Zangerl's trad line Into the Sun (8c+) in Mugtal. For the 20-year-old full-time competition climber, it was the first time he placed gear and his redpoint took only two sessions. Bernd has described the difficulties as, "It starts with a six move 8A+ traverse into Fred Nicole's old top rope boulder Murgtal Tag & Nacht 8A+ (where gear is placed) and tops out with a 7b link. "
