Interview: Matilda Söderlund about the ascent of Parzival

In an interview with LACRUX, Matilda Söderlund reveals how she became aware of the Parzival route, how she prepared for the tour and what the greatest challenges were for her.

The Swede Matilda Söderlund is known for her achievements in sport climbing and bouldering. So far, it has not been found on alpine routes. But now she was climbing Parzival in the Alpstein. Why did she celebrate her multi-pitch debut in the Parzival route and not in well-known routes like Silbergeier or End of Silence? How did she prepare for her first multi-pitch climbing trip? Matilda answers these and other questions in an interview with LACRUX.
