The Austrian, Jakob Schubert, is once again attracting attention with the commission of a difficult route: he manages the first repetition of the Neanderthal Route (9b) in Santa Linya, Spain.
"Dyno done!" With these words begins Jakob Schubert the public statement about the successful ascent of the 9b route Neanderthal. “On the first day on this dream route with its 115 trains (!!) I thought it would take a while before I could manage to get through,” Jakob continues. This year's high-flyer made very rapid progress and scored the route on the sixth day in the Spanish climbing area Santa Linya. “After I made the key point, I pretty much had to keep my nerve. This is not to be underestimated on such a long route. But when you get to the diverter, the feeling is all the more overwhelming, "says Jakob happily.
