|Without a doubt impressive what Christian Bindhammer has been up to recently!. His brief report of the fast but furious trips to Slovenias steep Ospo says it all. |
Five days at Easter resulted in flash ascents of 'Missing Drink' 8b+ and 'Marjestica', 8b/b+. After having checked out 'Strelovod' 8c this fell first go, while he redpointed 'Konec Mira', 8c/8c+, third go. To finish off he onsighted 'Popej' 8a+.
After placing 5th at the World Cup in Bolzano he returned once more to a rainy Ospo. This time he had his sights set on the 35m 'Millenium'. The German held his cool on the final five wet meters to onsight this 8b+! Fantastic. Bindhammer is now the fourth person to have onsighted this grade, following in the footsteps of Elli Chevieux, Yuji Hirajama and Cristian Brenna.
