Schweinepriester

Very happy to clip the chains on „Schweinepriester“ in Carinthia :-) This beautiful 42m line was opened by our friend Mario Schautz last spring and I did the first repetition last Wednesday! I think 8b is appropriate for the grade corresponding to this area. I climbed a slightly different variant than Mario, because I preferred the grey technical solid rock after the middle part. Two weeks ago I fell on the very last move, but than a lot of rain made the tufas soaking wet. Finally the route dried up and this time I managed to climb to the chain without getting too pumped for the final crux near the top! Such long lines are always a big challenge for the mind! Thanks to Mario for bolting, to Hannes for nice pics & belays, to Cuzl for condition-updates and to all locals for good times together!
