Sport climbing in Austria: Barbara Zangerl has repeated Unleashed 8c+ and Instructor 8c+/9a in her home Vorarlberg region.

Unable to travel to Yosemite because of Coronavirus restrictions, when Austria eased the lockdown Barbara Zangerl invested her time climbing close to home in the Vorarlberg region where she recently redpointed two heavyweights: Unleashed 8c+ and Instructor 8c+/9a

Unleashed is located close to Koblach and was freed by Mark Ammann with a long run out past the bouldery crux. Figuring out the moves from below past huge reaches proved difficult, and the 31-year-old needed about 9 days of attempts. Instructor on the other hand is located at Bregenzerwald and, after having been bolted by Mathis Rochus, was freed last year by Jacopo Larcher. The route sports a full 45 meters of pure resistance, for which Zangerl needed 17 attempts spread out over 7 days.

These two climbs are just the latest of a myriad of hard sport climbs Zangerl has sent in the past, which include the 9a Speed ​​Intégral climbed in 2018 at Voralpsee in Switzerland. She is, without a shadow of doubt, one of the most versatile climbers of all having onsighted up to 8b and redpointed 9a, climbed 8B boulder and E10 trad, as well as repeating some of the hardest multi-pitches in the Alps. Furthermore, on El Capitan she has free climbed more big walls than any other woman, having successfully redpointed El Niño, Zodiac, Magic Mushroom, Pre-Muir and The Nose. While it’s unclear what she and her partner Jacopo Larcher would have tried in Yosemite this spring, sporting this form it certainly wouldn’t have been a walk in the national park.
