Hades 9a and Fonax by Philipp Gaßner

14 June 2022

Philipp Gaßner has done Fonax (8c+) and Hades (9a) in Nassereith. ”I am happy to have climbed Hades which is a great endurance test piece. It starts with moderate climbing and then leads to the crux section. The crux is about powerful moves on relatively good crimps and ends with a daring cross move. After that, you reach a saving rest and you can enjoy the easier exit on some lovely grey rock. So it’s very fun to climb!”
