Everything is Karate 8c+/9a by Zangerl and Larcher


Thursday, 6 June

Barbara Zangerl was on her way to Yosemite but a bad weather forecast made her opt for plan B to Pine Creek with her partner Jacopo Larcher. After six days of climbing she could do Ethan Pringle's Everything is Karate 8c+/9a, which also Jacopo did. (c) Benjamin Ditto - The Bishop Area Climbing Coalition (BACC) works to educate visitors about responsible use of our beautiful landscape. "The original plan was to go to the valley to try the Nose free. But due to the weather we needed a plan B. The climbing here, around Bishop is amazing. Fun routes in every difficulty! I had a hard time on the last long move....got a really small mono edge and from there extended to a bad 3 finger crimp....I had to go dynamic....that felt really insecure and hard to me! More info on her Insta. Ten years ago, Barbara Zangerl was one of the very best female boulderers in the world. In 2009, she got an herniated vertebral disc which made her stop bouldering. Including one 9a and several 8c+' she is also nowadays among the best in sportclimbing and the same goes for trad, where she has done several 8b+' and 8c. Even so, big-walls and multi-pitches should be her best discipline with three FFA's in Yosemite up to 8c. So she is the best female multi-discipline rock climber out there, and in fact, a rather superior #1.

Debate/Jens: In trad climbing you are not allowed to have the gear or quickdraws in place and it was also like this in the beginning of the sport climbing era. Some ten years ago, you still had to place the draws if you were going to claim an onsight. The devaluation of ethics have continued and now…

During the Bouldering World Championship in 2007, Daniel Dulac won the semifinal by flashing all four problems but in the final he did not do a single Boulder even if each of the other five finalists did three problems on average. Daniel said that it was extremely frustrating to hear the spectators …
