Alexander Rohr on the road to success again in the new year

Alexander Rohr starts the new year at a very good pace. In January, the Bernese moved to the Spanish Oliana, where he climbed some difficult routes in just a few attempts.

Last year, Alexander ran in top form. He climbed Chromosomes Y in Charmey (8c + / 9a), Muy Verdes (8c) in norwegian Flatanger or L'appel de la forêt (8c) in Chuenisberg. The new year begins at the same pace for the Bernese.

After just four attempts, Rollito Ninja (8c) climbed

At the beginning of the year Alex moved to the Spanish climbing area Oliana. The area is known for its high density of ultra-heavy routes on the beautiful rock roller. Already in the first days he succeeded Duels la realidad (8c +), a route that he checked out on his last trip to Spain. This year it worked in a few attempts and he comments: “I was blown away by my personal progress in terms of power and sending fast.” Apparently, however, he has envisaged a more difficult route and is devoting himself to it a little more intensively. Nine days later, on January 19, he does not report the progress of his project, but the progress of Rollito Ninja, an 8c route that scores in just four tries. The route is waiting with a strong entry and a very pumping finish on repeaters.
