Big Paw for David Fiztgerald
Another great ascent for the young irish climber12 April 2018
This is the first 8C boulder for David, since his first world appearance last year with one of the rare repetitions of Voyager Sis Start
We know David Fitzgerald since about one year, when in Peak District he repeated Voyager Sis Start, the masterpiece by Ben Moon. In his visit in Maltatal last month, he joined two other relevant results: the repetition of the famous Bugeleisen by Klem Loskot and Lady in Black, both 8B+.
And now finally also an 8C with another significant line, this time in Chironico, Switzerland. Big Paw, the 8C sit start of Boogalaga which David so describes:
"One of the best lines I've ever seen. Perfect! Mini-compression method. Feels more 8C this way. Hopefully it cools down a bit here in Chironico. So much more to do!"
