Orca | 8c+ Sport route at Schleierwasserfall

Morpho. See also Fugu.

A tricky route to grade. Originally Alex Huber suggested 8c+. A hold then broke and Adam Ondra found a new sequence for which he suggested 9a, and then a few months later Jakob Schubert found yet another sequence for which he thought 8b!

I found a way better solution using a good side pull just left of Adam's crimp which lets me go directly to the finishing jug. Since this route is pretty much easy except this only move, the whole thing is much easier with my beta now, probably around 8b 😅 It climbs very nicely this way though so I definitely recommend it to people (>170cm) 😉 [1]
