Petting with an alligator 8A+ by Mia Krampl

Thursday, 24 September

Mia Krampl, #2 in the Lead World Championship last year and who later qualified to Tokyo, has done her second 8A+, Petting with an alligator in Maltatal.

I tried it few weeks ago and I loved it. So many different type of moves and heel hooks, knee hook... when I saw the boulder it seemed so difficult to me but with some help of my friends who have already sent it and told me the beta, I liked the line even better! Unfortunately I was falling from the last move for the several times on that day. This sunday I went back to Maltatal without the plan of trying Petting... but during the time I was waiting for the colder temperatures to try something harder with the other guys, I decided to give it a go! I've send it in few tries!
