Lockdown with Jakob Schubert

© Jakob Schubert

Jakob Schubert is one of the climbers who would have been jetting off to Tokyo with his eyes on a gold medal this summer. Instead in this video, we see how he initially copes with lockdown in Innsbruck, before it eases off and he's able to start rock climbing again.

Schubert casually ticks some Font 8B+s, Nihilist and Traumschiff in Zillertal, before turning his attention to some stunning looking sport routes in the area. He makes the first ascent of Walk the Line (9a), an interesting looking extension on bouldery, steep ground on the same day as climbing Traumschiff.

Further afield, Schubert went to Schleierwasserfall where his main objective was to repeat Alexander Huber's Weiße Rose. The route had only been repeated once since the first ascent in 1994.
