Franz Widmer makes 4th ascent of NBL, 8C

Franz Widmer has made the 4th ascent of Bernd Zangerl´s New baseline, 8C, in the Averstal. The problem follows a slopy crimpline to hard moves on micro-crimps towards the end. Says Franz: “A lot of good climbers tried it and didn´t succeed. And if it would have been easy going for me, one have the feeling it´s too easy. But it wasn´t… like for me on my thousands of tries.” On Dreilandrock you´ll find the full story as well as great pictures.
