Fabian Buhl 8c Solo Redpoint In Austria

Fabian Buhl 8c Solo Redpoint In Austria

Fabian Buhl solo redpoints „Ganesha“ (8c) at the Sonnwendwand, Loferer Steinplatte, Austria. After being the first to repeat Alex Huber’s “Nirwana”, a 7-pitch route on the Sonnwendwand at Loferer Steinplatte, which is considered one of the hardest multi-pitch routes in the World, Fabian Buhl was hooked. The 26-year old wanted to open his own route in the same style, starting ground-up and solo. Right next to “Nirwana” and the Huberbuam’s fatal route “Karma”, he solo redpointed “Ganesha” (8c), a 7-pitch route named after his mojo: an elephant-headed Hindu god that is widely revered as the Remover of Obstacles and the God of New Beginnings. A great image for overcoming many hurdles while developing his very own rope management system that has given him the confidence to tackle many more free-climbing projects in the future.
