Instructor 8c+/9a and Unleashed 8c+ by Barbara Zangerl


Sunday, 10 May

Babsi Zangerl reports on Insta that she has done Unleashed 8c+ and Instructor 8c+/9a in Bregenzerwald. The latter is 45 m long and it was bolted by Jürgen Höfle. Jacopo Larcher did get the FA and also the picture. "I was curious to hop on this 45m monster line! It was all about trying as hard as I can!!! This is a line I am very proud of, I am not really good in steep climbing but investing some hard work/obsession really paid off. Thanks for the inspiration Jacopino!!! We trained at home for one month! We got a training setup from evolution climbing... and combined hang boarding campusing and some core training... but luckily we were allowed to climb on rock soon. So we were quite lucky compared to many other countries. Anyway, I think we all have to use our common sense (like social distancing, avoiding crowded crags) as climbers, as none of us want to go back into lockdown." Barbara Zangerl is a contender for being the best female rock climber out there. Until 2009, the Austrian was one of the best female boulderer until she stopped due to an herniated vertebral disc. In routes, she has now done four routes 8c+/9a or 9a and in multi-pitches and big-walls she is totally superior out of the female.

Systematic Devaluing ethics

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…

No correlation between semi and final results for Top-4 in Boulder WCs

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 …
