Christof Rauch, full-time employee, sends „From Dirt Grows The Flowers“ (8C) to Chironico (Switzerland). It was the 12th ascent of Dave Graham Boulder’s 2005 boulder and Christof’s eighth route, Grade 8C and harder. Some years ago it had tried two sessions but failed the mantle. This year in January it was much better. After three sessions of his New Year trip and now two more sessions, he was finally able to climb the somewhat „tough“ boulder. Last week, Christof got the second ascent of „Old dirty Bastard sit“ (8B +) and of „Transparent things low“ (8B) in Lower Austria. Photo: (c) David Pilaj
