Jakob Schubert repeats Weiße Rose, Alexander Huber Schleierwasserfall masterpiece

di

29-year-old Austrian climber Jakob Schubert has repeated Weiße Rose, the historic 9a established by Alexander Huber at the Schleierwasserfall in 1994 and otherwise repeated only by Adam Ondra.

After being locked down for a couple of weeks, Jakob Schubert has now put his quarantine training to good use with his fast repeat of Weiße Rose high up at the Schleierwasserfall crag in Austria. Freed way back in 1994 by Germany’s Alexander Huber, at the time this 9a was one of the most difficult routes in the world and considered a milestone in sport climbing. Despite its fame it remained unrepeated until 2008 - possibly in part because it’s located on the crag’s upper tier - when Adam Ondra finally made the second ascent. Schubert has now made the third.

Talking to planetmountain.com, Schubert stated "I checked it out for the first time about a year and a half ago and although I only had a quick session, I realised it was a cool route that really suited my style. Lockdown rules in Austria are more relaxed now thankfully and last Sunday I worked it quickly and then fell really high on my first proper attempt. I returned on Tuesday for the send. Adam had told me it’s an outstanding line and I can confirm this."
