Babsi Zangelr on Greenspit

First female ascent for the historical crack

15 October 2020

 

Barbara Zangerl, world famous athlete, has climbed Greenspit, 8b+ trad. 

Back in October 2003, a young Didier Berthod established the line in trad style. The line was discovered by Roberto Perucca back in the 80s, in a sport style with some green spits. Witht the trad ascent by Didier, it has become one of the most famous and hard crack in Europe. This crack that breaks a big roof has become famous with the film First Ascent, back in 2006. 

In October 2020, finally a woman has climbed the line, Babsi has written her name near strong trad climbers like Haston, Nardi, Della Bordella,... After his flash ascent, Stevie Haston said "beautiful, physical and painful!"
