From Hades to Olympus

Andreas and Christian Bindhammer, our friends from neighborhood Germany, free “Hades 9a”, one of the hardest open projects in Tyrol.

In the recent years the climbing areas in German Allgäu and the border areas in Tyrol see a huge boom - at least concerning the difficulty level. Since three years Christian Bindhammer’s ”Big Hammer 9a” is at the top of these routes - now there is a new line, which could possibly take it´s rank: "Hades” at the “Götterwand” (Wall of Gods) in Nassereith (Tyrol/A).
No rest points on a length of 15 mt and extreme shoulder and undercling moves on constantly small edges result in high demands on the maximum strength-resistance - last waiting for a hardly controllable dyno to a three-finger side-hold - often the end to a promising, but finally failed attempt.
The only way to the top of Olympus seemed to lead through Hades – solving the tests, which the green hell of Allgäu would keep for future gods - and the everlasting quest for redeeming the ascent out of the Tyrolean shadows. In other words, the combination of the work on boulder-projects at the first and training in the route itself on the second day came out to be the appropriate way to success.
A cold front in the middle of July finally helped body and soul to reunite: On 05.07.08 Andreas Bindhammer succeed - after several days of intense tries, also during thunder and lightning. Four days later it was Christian's turn to solve the way to the top. Their proposal: 9a. - The hard-won victory over the strains in the underworld.
That the “Hammerbrothers” know what they are talking about is proofed by a huge number of first ascents and repetitions over the past years. The list of new boulders in the Allgäu areas speaks for itself - an ideal preparation for routes at the limit, as both can tell. At the NePaPla-wall, which they discovered last autumn, this season some absolute top-boulders found their way into life: the body-tension test piece “Firestarter 8b/8b+ fb”, the uncompromising line of “Frontman 8b fb”, the sloper-dyno of “Icebound 8a+/8b fb” and the undercling move of “Ristretto 8a+ fb” - to name just a few examples - all first ascents done by Christian and with exception of the last, which already saw a repetition of the boulder specialists Hary Röker, so far only repeated and confirmed  by Andreas.
Everybody who ever heard about the ”Hammerbrothers” knows: might the way to (climbing-) Olympus still be long and arduous - it will be taken. So we wait for further news – as long as the steep world still provides enough potential…
