In this video we get to follow him to Sundergrund in the Zillertal and to Silvretta, where he repeats Bernd Zangerl's Anam cara, ~8B+.
Recently, Paul has spent time in Varazze, Italy, where the plan was to try to repeat Christian Core's Gioia, ~8C+. he got close, but in the end a split tip forced him to leave it for the moment. According to Paul ...it is such a fun climb, but with one hold of death, like a bird's beak that you crimp!
While in Varazze he repeated Gandalf il Grigio, 8B+, and Alpha Centauri Sit, 8B.
