Another 9a from Bocki

© UKC News
Markus Bock has done yet another 9a in the Frankenjura. Bocki first noticed the line back in April, but as he was slightly injured he couldn't work it at the time. Once he was ok, he needed 5 days of work to do the FA of Pantera, 9a.
The route can be divided into two parts. The first consists of 14 moves which require very technical and precise climbing on small edges and flat side-pulls. After this, a crack is reached, which is followed to the top. This second part is easier.
