Roland Hemetzberger climbs Nebuchadnezzar
It's the first 9a in New Zeland27 July 2016
Roland Hemetzberger climbed Nebuchadnezzar, a new route graded 9a in New Zeland, the first one of this difficult in this wonderful land. The search of hard climb for Roland is not linked only to grade but also for the beauty of a route, of a place, and its history. At the end of 2015 for example, he did the FA of an old route in Achleiten (Austria), bolted more then 20 years ago. Roland was the first also to did the unrepeated Lichtblick and The Void and also Zarathustra, an 8c+ trad climb. If you want an atipica climber, he is.
