Goodmorning to you! Well it’s about time to show another impressive route to start your day!

In 1996, Harald Bielmeier, bolted this 40m crack line (8c+), which ends in fifteen feet of blank wall. Since then, this final crux remained unsolved and unclimbable. For Black Diamond athlete Roland Hemetzberger, that was all the reason and motivation to have a closer look at it.

Two years of work revealed the solution, but more than that: the realization that the route could be climbed in a cleaner style. On the fixed rope, Hemetzberger removed the bolts and replaced them with birdpeaks, stoppers, camalots and pitons: trad gear used during his Alpine climbing.

Thumbs up to Roland to climb a route in a style like this!

Here’s a video from last week’s IFSC Climbing World Championship Boulder which was held in Munich. It’s an edit by Udo Neumann of the finals for those who missed it.

In the end, Germany’s Juliane Wurm took gold on home soil and the Czech Republic’s Adam Ondra clinched his first Boulder World Champion title. Well done guys!

Climbers, please pay attention to this trailer about South Africa! The scenery is so beautiful, culture, music and world class sandstone climbing. What more do you wish for? Kudos for the producer who put this together.

Africa Fusion is a new film documenting the odyssey of Alex Honnold and Hazel Findlay as they climb their way through South Africa. Though South Africa is often featured in the media for its outstanding bouldering, little is known about the country’s amazing sport and trad climbing. Check out this trailer for a film that features Honnold and Findlay exploring the big lines that exist in South Africa.

Actually I can’t wait to see the full film. Just a few more months until it’s 2015…Check here for more.

WE MISSED THE ONSIGHT BY A FOOT POP, BUT I DIDN’T CARE BECAUSE ALEX FELL OFF AND I DIDNT, AND THAT MAKES A MEMORABLE DAY IN MY BOOK.
