Angeschossenes Wolf 8C by Philipp Gassner

Tuesday, 9 February

Philipp Gaßner has done Toni Lamprect's Angeschossens Wolf 8C in Kochel. "The boulder is a harder exit version of Real Absurdistan‘ that I did a week ago. Then it took me one more session send it and grab its first repeat. Close to the finish it turns right and adds an explosive dead point to the saving top hold. The key to success was to climb the lower part as fast and precise as possible in order to save the necessary power for the last move. That boulder is just the epitome of my style and for now, I feel very fortunate about having these boulders at my home crag. So already looking forward to return for some remaining projects. There is Bokassas Fridge 8c that I'm psyched to try and a few easier ones."
