In climbing I do things that I enjoy and want to do not the ones that are currently in fashion.

Fischhuber repeats Unendliche Geschichte and Mordor

 

Austrian Kilian Fischhuber made the third ascent of Chris Sharma’s testpiece Unendliche Geschichte (Neverending Story) in Magic Wood/Switzerland. The boulder problem was first climbed by the American in 2003. This long-standing project was a link of two Bernd Zangerl’s problems: Unendliche Geschichte Part 1 & 2 (8A+ and 8B/B+ respectively). Sharma didn't grade the problem, but it was supposed to be one of the world’s hardest ones (the media speculated about 8C or 8B+/C grade). When 16-year old German climber Julius Westphal managed to make the 2nd ascent in the same year, spending on the problem just three days, the grade went down to 8B+.
Kilian hasn’t forgotten about climbing with a rope. He proved it at the beginning of July, repeating 2002 Markus Heid’s route, Mordor 8c+/9a at Ötztal, Austria.
