She began trying the route two years ago, and although I don't know how much she has worked it since, I suspect it's a great feeling to finally have it in the bag. What she posted on fb also hints in that direction:
I am sooooooo happy that "Chikane 8c+" didn't kick me off today. Feels so good to enjoy the simple life here in Spain and get back into Sport climbing mode.
This was Babsi's hardest route so far and, according to herself the first 8c+. Previously she has climbed two 8c/+'s: Harry's dirty brother, 2016, and Helel Ben Schachar, 2015, both at Vorarlberg.
Barbara Zangerl is one of the most accomplished allround climbers in the World having climbed ~8B boulder, 8c+ sport, 8b+ multi pitches and E9/10 trad.
