Sachi Amma has repeated Bernd Zangerl's New Base Line, ~8B+, at Magic Wood/Averstal in Switzerland.

New Base Line follows a crack with notouriously slopey crimpers from right to left to a couple of powerful and balancy moves, which leads to smaller but sharper holds and then easier terrain towards the top. Sachi neded only three tries, meaning this is most likely the quickest ascent ever.

I sent New Baseline 8B+ on my third go!!!!! Unbelievable!!!!! I expected that it is possible to climb in a day. But not that fast.

Sachi is now on his way to Chironico again. Expect more news!
