9a – Wow! Solveig klettert „La Cabane au Canada“

Ein langer Traum ist in Erfüllung gegangen. Solveig gelingt den Durchstieg ihrer ersten 9a Route. Was für ein Meilenstein in ihrer Kletterkarriere. Die Route ist im Wallis im Klettergebiet Rawyl. Wir gratulieren Hunderttausendmal!

„I couldn’t have wished for a better route and place to fulfill a longterm dream of mine!

Since I spent a bit of time in Rawyl last year and already climbed the route „La Cabane au Paradis“ which is the neighbor of „La Cabane au Canada“ and shares the same lower part, I knew instantly that I wanted to come back and climb this impeccable line!

After falling a few times in the upper part of Cabane au Canada last year an struggling quite a bit with one move which was very low-percentage an big for me, I was doubting myself if I could do this part from the ground after having already 25 meters of harder climbing in my arms.

When I came back this year I wanted to be well prepared and came straight out of a longer training cycle. The difference I felt was almost insane – being able to recover much better in the lower part an finding a new beta for the upper crux. I was totally surprised that the tiny intermediate I used for the big move I could now lock off an reach the next hold in a much more static an safe way.

That gave me a lot of confidence and I knew with a good mindest it’s totally in my ability and in the end, I think this rout couldn’t have fit me better!

Special thanks to @enchain.ave.jonshen who had the pleasure to belay my super long dogging session the first time up, my dad @clklaus who came with me to Rawyl in October when we woke up in a snow storm one time and @tinamyte for the sending belay and sharing this special moment with me!

Thanks for all the kind messages I received already! It means a lot to me.

Thank you @hannestell.vertical for all the amazing shots (Fotos) and joining my adventure here in Rawyl!
