Christof Rauch again and again! The first ascent of Carinthian Dreams, 8C
The incredible power of the austrian climber that sends the third 8C FA in just a few days26 May 2017
Day after day, project after project, Christof Rauch climbs another first ascent of extreme grade!
In the month of may he demonstrated many times his great shape: he first climbed Guardian of the Galaxy, 8B+ followed by Iron Knuckles, 8C both in the area of Karnten.
Few days later, it was Styrian Delirium, 8C in Weststeiermark, to be sent and finally this last boulder, Carinthian Dreams, again in Karnten and again one 8C, for a total number of three boulder problems of this grade sent in eleven days.
Extremely impressive results!
On his 8a.nu page, Christof feels astonished for this incredible moment:
"Oh my god! Seems like I'm in the best shape ever! This is the hardest and one of the best problems I've ever done. It links the crackline (~8A+) into "Punching in a Dream" (~8B+). I've never put so much effort in a boulderproblem, all in all it took me about 17 sessions. Got really lucky with todays windy and pretty cold conditions. Compared to all the other hard boulders I've done/tried I would say it sits probably on the upper range of the grade. Just happy now!"
After the first relevant results, we were waiting for new great ascents and Rauch did not disappointed us...and there is a possible harder exit of Iron Knuckles still waiting...so probably we will heard soon about him again!
