On Jan. 19, Christian Bindhammer managed the first repeat of Coxa Distorta, after one of the crucial holds broke. Christian believes the traverse is now a bit harder and sugests 8b+ trav. The strong German also had a great fall with repeats of both, Pumpgun, 8b trav. and Burn 4 U, 8c. But this is not all! In early January, Christian also grabbed the third ascent, behind Zardini and Brenna of The big mother, 8c+/9a, at Erto, Italy. He is somewhat hesitant about the grade, but feels it´s definately not the hardest in Italy and for him personaly, a softish 8c+. He checks in at third position in the 8a.nu´s worldranking.
