Angela Eiter, code word "never stop"!
Project and realization of Austrian champion12 July 2017
Winning in competition, strong on sport climbing, teacher in a climbing gym, extremely courteous and professional when not climbing, Angela Eiter is the perfect athlete with an incredible palmaress during her “first life” in comp and ready again to dedicate totally herself to a always new project now.
Born in 1986, started with climbing very young and when she was just 16 begane in world competitions. From 2004 to 2006 won three World Cup and from 2005 to 2012 four World Champioship. In Italy she’s famous also for her six titles won during Rock Master at Arco di Trento.
In 2014 climbed her first and second 9a doing Hades in Götterwandl and Big Hammer in Pinswang and the next year also famous Era Vella in Margalef. In the middle was able to do a 8a boulder in flash style, Middleof the Ass, and a 8b, Fragile Step, both in Rocklands.
With his boyfriend bolted some interesting crag in particolar in Greece at Leonido and Kyparissi and now, after some little but tiresome accident, is again on a new project near her Imst.
“The actual hot temperatures are probably hard for many climbers. Completing hard projects isn’t my plan right now, but I want to take advantage on the sunny days to climb outside. It’s time to think about crags in shadow nearby my homeplace Imst. Firstly, I head to my local crag called „Götterwandl“ in Nassereith, where I am about trying one powerful route. This route is called „Athene“ and after some holds broke the grade is about 8c/+. Altogether the route has 20 hard moves, whereas just two moves are extremely hard.
Here, I have to cross on a small crimp, from where I must jump very explosively onto another crimp, all this from really bad footholds. I have already done every single move. Now I am asked to combine them all from the very beginning. Due to the big and hard moves the line doesn’t fit my style, but really motivates me to stand back.
Through bouldering I get the power I need and walk occassionally to the cooler bouldering area at the Silvretta. There I managed to climb the perfect line named „Diamond Nuts, 8a“, that blew my mind. A powerful beginning follows into bad holds and tiny footholds at the end. Moreover, the end is quite scary, because the landing is unconvenient and deep if you fall. Luckily, I completed this line quite fast.”
