Angela Eiter frees Hercules 8c+ at Götterwandl in Austria
Now the four-times Lead World Champion checks in with what she believes is her hardest first ascent ever, namely Hercules 8c+. Located at her home crag, the Götterwandl at Nassereith, this line is a "collage" of three existing routes; the lower section of Nofredete and the crux moves of both Neptun and Odysseus. The result are 42 intense moves and, according to Eiter “an extremely logical line." Seeing that she had climbed all three routes previously, all the 28-year-old had to do was try the new linking sections before sending the route on day 3.
