Great Janja: Bugeleisen!
The Slovenian star marks the first female ascent09 March 2022
Another incredible result for Garnbret who demonstrates her stratospheric level on all terrains!
It was not enough for her to dominate the international competitions of recent years. Nor to win the first Olympic gold in the history of climbing. Nor again to write history with the first female on sight 8c in crag climbing, immediately followed by the second…. Without too many words, Janja Garnbret achieves another great result also in outdoor bouldering.
In the Austrian Maltatal, the Slovenian star has in fact climbed the 8B+ of Bugeleisen: a mythical line, which has always been one of the symbols of the area. An overhanging wall on crimps climbed by the legendary Klem Loskot and to which Nalle Hukkataival added a sit start making it 8C and which has not seen many repeats in either version since.
This is clearly the first female ascent ... and, considering the ease with which Janja has climbed it (see video in her instagram post), the next step that awaits her is then the sit start, with which she would really reach the top of female bouldering!
