Kraftplatz: 9a for Rauch
Nice ascent for Christof01 March 2021
Christof Rauch has climbed Kraftplaz, 9a in Berglsteiner See.
Established by David Lama back in 2016, Kraftplatz is a real hard 9a route. In five years, few climbers have been able to climb it, like Schubert, Dornauer and Verhoeven: great names! Rauch is also well known, more between the boulders than in the sport routes. In his career, Christof has sent more than 800 boulders “8A or harder”, with more than ten 8Cs. Kraftplatz is his third 9a and it is the last one hard route of the period, after many nice climbs in Austria.
For climbing it, he has spent some days between different years, and just three in 2021. AS his “routine”, he has climbed the line at his last attempt of the day, demonstrating a great consciousness of himself. He says that it has been an “Epic fight” versus this endurance testpiece.
