The 21-year-old Bernese Alexander Rohr made the third ascent of Chromosome Y (8c + / 9a) in Charmey last Sunday.

The route was first opened by Pirmin Bertle and had only experienced a repeat of Adam Ondra. Alexander also cracked the route on Sunday. However, it tends to slightly downgrade the route and classifies it as 8c + or lightweight 9a.

Alexander Rohr's comment

“Bääm !!! On SundayI managed to do the third ascent of 'Chromosome Y' 9a in Charmey after Pirmin and Adam Ondra. Although the route seemed to be more like 8c + / 9a for me, it's just an amazing one…. I tried it last year some days and was far from success and this this year it took me only two days! "
