Minimalomania (Fb8C+/9A trav.) - The new boulder traverse test piece in Lindental and my hardest climbing ever.

Uploaded by dpm

The big final of a crazy projecting process! Two days before the springtime bird protection closure –on January the 29th – I could finally send these 25 hardest moves in my life. 5 months and 40 days of work on a piece of rock in the Lindental near Bern/Switzerland that was meant to be much longer but showed off to be infernally hard. Sophisticated climbing on perfect sandstone; big moves, tiny crimps and delicate foot work in a bloody tiring run through without any rest. 4 moves of 8B+ plus 11 moves of 8B traverse and 9 moves of 7B boulder to the top jug. I never have given so much of me into a project but on this windy day with perfect conditions and the most professional preparation I’ve ever managed it finally paid off :) Thanks to Edelrid and Maiday.
