Janja Garnbret climbs 8C by sending Bügeleisen (sit-start)

Janja Garnbret reports with an Instagram video that she has done the first female ascent of Nalle Hukkataival's Bügeleisen sit-start (8C) in Maltatal. Two years ago she sent the 8B+ stand and this time she needed less than 30 minutes to get the beta and send it. (c) Stanko Gruden from 2022.

"Funny sidenote: wasn’t happy with the video Roman [Krajnik] took of my ascent, so I actually went for another go and climbed the whole thing again ;)"

In the last 23 World Cups, the 25-year-old has participated in, she has never placed lower than second place, in addition to winning six golds in the European and World Championships, as well as the Olympics.
