[VIDEO] Jaopo Larcher and Barbara Zangerl on Magic Mushroom in Yosemite
Second ascent after Tommy Caldwell in 201226 July 2018
It was an immense performance. After the first ascent in 2012 achieved nothing less than by Tommy Caldwell, no one repeated the route at least until December of last year, when Jacopo Larcher and Barbara Zangerl succeeded in what is one of their greatest achievements, the first repeat of Magic Mushroom on the Californian giant of El Capitan.
Opened in 1972 by Hugh Burton and Steve Sutton, Caldwell not only freed it but also returned to do it the same day and for the Larcher-Zangerl team it was the third big wall in Yosemite after El Nino in 2015 and Free Zodiac in 2016.
