Christian Bindhammer repeats "Action Directe" (9a)

German Christian Bindhammer has succeeded in repeating Wolfgang Gullich's world famous "Action Directe" (9a) in the Frankenjura, Germany. This is the fifth ascent and it took Christian 6 days on the route this year to send the route by using a completely new sequence on the upper crux. The main difficulty for Christian was the big jump from a mono at the start of the route which he could only do 2 times out of 12 tries.
