Shortly before the end of the year Michael Kemeter managed the red point ascent of Route No Third Thing (8c +) in Styria.

The 31-year-old Mich Kemeter is known for his hair-raising slackline tours, first ascents of multi-pitch routes such as Tortour (see video below) and free solo ascents of difficult sport climbing routes.

“What a nice end to the year 2019. I just got the first replay of No Third Thing.”

The Austrian's most recent success is the first repetition of the No Third Thing sport climbing route in Styria. The route was first started by Bernhard Fiedler in 2014 and rated 8c +.
