In October, Austrian climber Angela Eiter made the first female ascent of Zauberfee 8c+ at Eremo near Arco, Italy. Shortly afterwards she climbed her first 9a at Götterwandl in Nasserreith, Austria with an ascent of Hades (UKC News Report).
In tonight's video we follow Angela on her journey to completing Zauberfee, drawing on her experience as a former international competition climber - having won numerous World Cup, World Championship and Arco Rockmaster titles.
Describing her feeelings after finishing the route, she claimed: "The feeling was just as intense as winning a World Championship."
