Katja Vidmar, Petting with an alligator in the Maltatal

The video of Katja Vidmar sending the boulder problem Petting with an alligator 8A+ in the Maltatal, Austria

"This was the best christmas present ever. And probably the sweetest moment of my climbing life." These are the words the young Slovenian climber Katja Vidmar used to describe her recent ascent of the her hardest boulder problem to date, Petting with an alligator in Austria's Maltatal.

Katja Vidmar - yes the sister of Maja Vidmar, the winner of the Lead World Cup 2007 - first attempted this 8A+ in 2010 and managed to reach stick the "top" just the other day. Next step Klem Loskot nearby testpiece Wrestling with an Alligator? As the name suggests though, the fight becomes more intense... a battle worth 8B.
