Black Beauty 9a by Samuel Ometz

Wednesday, 16 September

Samuel Ometz has done his fourth 9a in 2020, Black Beauty in Dossen. "One of the best! Dyno crux at the start, then some power endurance and hard boulder without rest at the top. It is the 1st line they bolted on that cliff. It's super obvious following a black stripe first and then going diagonally on crack systems. Patrick Aufdenblatten did the FA last fall. I lost count of the number of days, more than 10 over two years. Counting the days where I came for nothing because it was wet. Already looking forward to back next summer because there are several really good hard projects there and its probably the sport crag with the best conditions in the summer in Swiss."
