“Zigeunerbaron Extrem” (beyond competition)
Robert Schauer (Österreich) - German, 21 min
12. Nov. 2008 from 17:00 in Schubertkino
The route “Zigeunerbaron Extrem“ at the gate to the cave “Zigeunerloch” near Gratkorn was climbed for the first time by the two Styrians Christoph Grill and Thomas Hrovat twenty years ago. This event was documented in the first independent film production by Robert Schauer. The 40 m long overhang with a ranking of 8b is considered a great climbing challenge, even today. The climbers talk about their motivations and explain why they have repeated this project again and again.
