Finite Infinity 9a by David Firnenburg

Friday, 12 November

David Firnenburg has done Finite Infinity (9a) in Interlaken. In total, the 26-year-old and former competition climber has now done 10 routes 9a and harder. At the comp scene, he has 12 podiums in the IFSC youth series and as a senior, his best result was #4 in a Boulder WC.

"Gorgeous line opened by Matthias König in 2018. Great vision and a lot of work he invested in establishing the route. For me one of the hard classics of Switzerland. It consists of two bouldery sections, separated by a rest point on good crimps. The first boulder is reachy and physical on crimps, open holds and gastons. The second boulder is rather techy on slopy holds and small edges. I needed to climb fast but precise in this part in order to be as efficient as possible. After another rest, it‘s pumpy 8b climbing to the top. Happy to have finished it in only two sessions before the season for lead climbing comes to an end at many crags here in Switzerland. Winter season in Ticino ahead!"
