Julian Zanker Climbs Rätikon Lilith
The Rätikon is a very special area for me.
It's always a real pleasure to climb this beautiful, fastidious rock. We climbed a 230 meter long vertical wall named Lilith (7c+) with very small holds. After I broke my wrist I prefer to spend my free time on multi pitch routes.
It's always a fantastic experience and after a perfect day like this, I feel tired, out of power, but so lucky and alive. The first pitches were beautiful and after the second one it's very steep. I like :-)
It's always great to climb with my friend Beno. We understand each other very well and we have a lot of fun on the wall, which is really important.
I was able to climb pitch 6 (7b) and 7 (7c) onsight. I was very surprised because the Rätikon is not a climbing garden. The difficulty is situated highly. You have to push yourself and your partner.
After 5 hours of climbing we were at the top and enjoyed some bread and cheese...
Our view was facing to the "Silbergeier" (8b+) which is an amazing wall.
Since I'm a climber I dream about climbing that route....maybe I will sometime next year.
