Watch Fabian Buhl solo redpoints „Ganesha“ (8c) at the Sonnwendwand, Loferer Steinplatte, Austria.
After being the first to repeat Alex Huber’s “Nirwana”, a 7-pitch route on the Sonnwendwand at Loferer Steinplatte, which is considered one of the hardest multi-pitch routes in the World, Fabian Buhl was hooked. The 26-year old wanted to open his own route in the same style, starting ground-up and solo. Right next to “Nirwana” and the Huberbuam’s fatal route “Karma”, he solo redpointed “Ganesha” (8c), a 7-pitch route named after his mojo: an elephant-headed Hindu god that is widely revered as the Remover of Obstacles and the God of New Beginnings. A great image for overcoming many hurdles while developing his very own rope management system that has given him the confidence to tackle many more free-climbing projects in the future.
