NEWSFLASH: Another 9a and 8c+ for Angela Eiter

Austrian climber Angela Eiter has climbed her second 9a and another 8c+, bringing her ticklist total for 2014 to five 8c+'s and two 9a's. This is considered to be the most impressive annual ticklist for a female sport climber in history.

Angela recently climbed Big Hammer 9a, a route first climbed by Christian Bindhammer in Pinswang, North Tyrol, following an ascent of her very first 9a Hades in October (UKC News Report).

A few days later on 1st December she made the second ascent of Nostalgischer Bastard 8c+ in Prutz, Austria. 

The four-times World Champion in lead climbing changed her focus to outdoor sport climbing in 2013, leaving the competition circuit to concentrate on hard sport ascents. 

We recently featured a video of Angela climbing Zauberfee 8c+ in Arco, Italy, watch it here.
