I´m writing this post in english so that the person the text is all about can understand whats beeing said…
Whitout making any noise Marcus Eder from Austria has during a 5 months stay for studying, when not tearing down det woodenroom at Fabben, crushed many hard routes on the west coast and around Gothenburg.
I asked him about what routes he did while staying here and got told that he had climbed Some 8a´s and 8a+´s. Allthough I haven´t succeeded on any 8b. Here is a list of some of his sends. Only Sara in Tollsjö took him more than a one day effort:
Musen 8a, Viks Kile
På Västfronten intet nytt 8a, Viks Kile
Törnrosa 8a, Hylteberget
Kejsarens nya kläder 8a, Korpaberget
Sara 8a, Tollsjö
Space Boy 8a, Seglora
Stora tygga vargen 7c+, Tjörnbroklippan
It aint over until the fat lady sings 7c+, Bräcke
30-åriga kriget 7c+, Viks Kile
Robot 7c FLASH, Korpaberget
Kometsvansen 7c, Korpaberget
Hey Baberibba 7c, Tjörnbroklippan
Hipp-Hopp 7c, Gubben i berget
Last summer he within one week climbed first his hardest boulder so far, 8B followed by a one day ascent of an unrepeated 8c+ route before rapping up one great week the next day by doing the FA of a 8c route.
When I first met Marcus in the begining of januari we decided that we would go climbing together so I could show him some climbs worth doing around the westcoast. We have every now and then bumped in to eachother but not been able to set a date for a day outdoors. Either I´ve been sick or he´s been sick or had an exam or I´ve had to work or… Yeah, you get the picture. And now unfortunetly Marcus, after had his last exam today, is now leaving for his homecountry…
Anyhow, it´s been a real plesure getting to know you at least a bit, altough I would loved to have spent some more time with you. But we´ll keep in touch and soon I´ll see you around Chironico, Magic or why not Utby!
