Hemetzberger climbs Neuron, 9a+!
FA taken after 25 years21 November 2020
Roland Hemetzberger has established Neuron, a new route in Achleiten, and proposes the grade of 9a+.
Bolted 25 years ago by Stefan Fürst, this overhang was wainting for a first ascent. Jorg Verhoeven, 360 degrees climber who is always looking for new adventures, has brought back to life this old route and he has started to try it with Roland. The Bavarian has climbed it, establishing the FA, calling it Neuron and proposing the 9a+ grade. The routebon an 8c+ and then turns on the next line, a 9a called The void. After Qui, this one is the hardest route climbed by Roland. Despite his young age, he is a real complete climber. He has climbed a lot of hard trad lines and hard multipitches; he has a multipitch project waiting for him, that could be harder than WoGu (8c)!
