7 May 2013

Gabri Moroni has had another great trip to Frankenjura where he did two 8c+ and several almost 30 year old classical including Kamasutra 218. "Gullich '86! 3tries. Hardest 8b ive ever done!"

You love it or you hate it... and the hard routes are kind of specifics with bouldery sequences on bad crimps and pockets." Full report and and more pics by Thomas Horstner in his blog
