Kilian Fischhuber claims first repeat of Headless Children in Rätikon

di

The video of Austrian climber Kilian Fischhuber making the first repeat of Headless Children (8b, 250m) in the Rätikon massif.

It looks like a watercolor painting, a delicate mix of hues and streaks, but closer inspection reveals it’s an absolutely perfect natural work of art. The Mother nature masterpiece in question is the extraordinary section of rock up Schijenfluh in the Rätikon massif, breached between 1997 and 1999 by Marco Müller, Koni Mathis and Bruno Rüdisser with their Headless Children.

This 260m line deals with difficulties up to 8b and is certainly on a par with other more famous routes nearby, such as Silbergeier to name the most obvious, but due to a twist of fate the route has always remained on the sidelines. Light has now been shed onto this masterpiece by Kilian Fischhuber, the strong Austrian boulderer, who recently made the first repeat after just two days of effort.
