L'isola che non c'è 9a by Christof Rauch

16 April 2022

Christof Rauch has done his third 9a in just eleven days, L'isola che non c'è in Amden. "Amazing hybrid between bouldering and route climbing. It all starts with an awesome roof boulder on amazing holds, leads into a slightly easier middle part and finishes with a short and powerful boulder on the rope, followed by some easier climbing to the top. Really happy to get the third ascent of this amazing Fred Nicole testpiece!"

How hard is the roof boulder and then the rope climbing?
It shares Ragtime 8B+ untill the last ~6 moves (~7A/B) but has another 5-moves 8A crux on the rope instead, followed by some easier climbing to the top.

How many sessions were needed to send?
I did it (Ragtime) in two sessions in 2016. Over the next years, I had two sessions on the route. Last autumn I invested three more sessions and got really close to sending it but then the snow came and it was too cold. Yesterday was my first session this year. I felt stronger than last autumn and surprised myself with a send.
