Eva Hammelmüller ticks Ötztal's Moria (8c)

1 June 2023

Eva Hammelmüller, who last year won a Euro Boulder Cup and this year has sent two 8c+’, has done Moria (8c) in Ötztal. (c) Felix Mast

What's the lowdown on this route and your send?
The send of this technical as well as powerful route was very unexpected! After checking out the moves and trying to dry two holds, I just gave it a try, everything worked out perfectly, and I found myself on top of the route! As there are two other classic routes next to Moria, this line doesn’t get too much attention, yet (if you like tiny holds and some weird moves). It is incredible to climb!

What’s coming up next?
Right now, I am preparing for the Lead World Cup in Innsbruck and after that, it will be decided whether I’ll compete at the next WCs, too. Thus, I focus mainly on climbing indoors at the moment, but every two weeks or sometimes once a week, I like to go outside.
