Silvretta bouldering repeats

29.07.2008 by Planetmountain

Kilian Fischhuber and Corny Obleitner repeat Memento Fb 8c+ while Berni Schwaiger repeats Anam Cara Fb 8c, all freed by Bernd Zangerl in the Silvretta, Austria.

Austria's Silvretta has seen some high end bouldering repeats of late. On 20/07/2008 Kilian Fischhuber managed a rare repeat of Memento, the Fb 8c+ problem located high up in Vorarlberg's skiing paradise first climbed by local Bernd Zangerl in 2005. Fischhuber repeated the ultra-powerful seven moves after 3 days of work, and his ascent comes just a week after young Corny Obleitner from Innsbruck also bagged a fast ascent.

Talking about Zangerl boulder problems in the Silvretta: his November 2007 creation Anam Cara has now been repeated by fellow countryman Berni Schwaiger, who confirmed the grade at Fb8c and the outstanding beauty of the line. If you don't know where to escape the heat this summer, Silvretta might be right up your street.
