The german climber Solveig Korherr has done ‚Zor‘ 8c in the Turkish climbing crag Datça. The 22-year-old German has been in Turkey for over two months now and there is no fixed end date yet.

Solveig comments on his Insta: „I‘m feeling so grateful to be here in Datça at the moment. Living next to the sea and having this huge cave around the corner is amazing!
After getting used to this steep and powerful climbing in the cave in the first few weeks, I found myself a perfect challenge with „Zor“. The first pitch is a very bouldery and steep 8b+ (pic 1) followed by endurance climbing in the extension (pic 2). The lower boulder section didn’t really fit me, but I’m glad I persevered over many days despite wet holds and seepage to find the beta that worked for me!
After finally sticking the big move from the ground that I kept on falling (pic 1), I luckily fought my way through the cave to the anchor! What a big journey!“
