8b (+) trad FA by Beat Kammerlander (50)

Planet Talk: Beat Kammerlander has put up Prinzip Hoffnung, 8b (+) which is a 40 metre vertical trad route. Beat had also the FA on bolts which he removed.”It took me more than nine months be mentally prepared for a first try. The micro-stoppers that fit into the thin crack normally hold 150 to 300 kg. In case of a fall the impact is a lot higher.” Beat has also suggested a E9/10 grade. Check out the movie Picture by Peter Mathis.
