8a+/b by Knorr

Martin Keller reports: Last Saturday, Damaris Knorr climbed the athletic, 35 meter long Skye line, 8a+/b at Bürs (Austria) (Before a hold was broken the route was rated 8a+.) A very impressive performance after just a few days on the route, also because she didn´t use a possible no-hand-rest after the first 20 meters (about 7c+/8a) and on the (also) pumping second part you have to climb quite engaged between the spits to reach the top.
