Zangerl's comeback thanks to spiritual healing

Bernd Zangerl's climbing career has been anything but linear. In an interview, the bouldering pioneer reveals how a spiritual healer made his comeback possible for him in 2015, where his irrepressible passion for opening up new lines comes from, or what he understands by sustainable climbing tourism.

The program is presented by Bächli Bergsport and Petzl

In the last episode of Lacrux TV we have with Bernd Zangerl talked about the development in climbing. But the native of Arlberg told us a lot more in the interview and we don't want to withhold that from you. For example, how spiritual healing helped him when "classical" medicine had already written off his climbing career. Or how he wants to prevent his “baby” – the bouldering area of ​​Rakcham in the Indian Himalayas – from suffering the same fate as many European bouldering and climbing Meccas.

Up high with that Beta Stick Project Brush

If you want to aim high with your projects, you should take a closer look at the Beta Stick Project Brush. Climbing brushes with long handles have long been established in bouldering gyms to clean distant holds. The Beta Stick Project Brush is the counterpart for outdoors, but much easier to transport thanks to the telescopic handle.

In order to find the best position for cleaning on the rock, the head of the Beta Stick Project Brush can be locked in three positions (0°, 45°, 90°). The telescopic handle can be extended up to 2,64 meters, but with a minimum length of less than one meter, the stick can also be easily stowed away in a backpack or in the bouldering mat. 

Thanks to the telescopic style, the Beta Stick Project Brush can be used to clean handles from a distance of more than 2,6 meters.
