26 Nov Roland Hemetzberger, The Void FA, 9a
The 24 years old Roland Hemetzberger after five years working, resolved finally The Void, a new route graded by Roland 9a in Achleiten, where climbed also Lichtblick of the same grade. Both are FA and the hardest routes for this strong German climber so there are proposals.
"30m of 8b+ or 8c climbing a small rest follows in a hard boulder. I always thought the last meters were not climbable. I have tried the route every year and this year maybe six days or so. That is the Route. The Name is calling – The Void – every climber knows this feeling. My hardest ascent before was Lichtblick, a 9a FA in Achleiten too."
