New 9a by Lamprecht

Toni Lamprecht managed to do this new top-route in the UIAA Grade 11 at the Atlantis-Wand in Kochel. This is the 5th hard first ascent on the wall, next to “Jesus” (8c), “Chaos in Palumbia” (8c), “Ramayana” (8c+) and with the nearby “Dalli-Dalli” (8c/9a) one of the hardest in the climbing area in the South of Germany. Characterized by a lot of tricky moves on underclings, sidepulls and little edges in the middle section, the route ends with a bouldery finish. After the pumpy climb through a 10m overhang the climber gets blasted out in general at the finish, just left of the route “Chaos in Palumbia”. The project was bolted about 10 years before Toni did the first free ascent after many years of trying in the end of the spring season. The name Marsupilami is taken from Franquin´s comic-figure, who lives in the deep rain forest of “Palumbia”. With incredible skills like enormous power, a 7m long tail and perfect diving abilities the animal saves his friends and his family out trouble and every fearsome situation.
