Austrian climber Angy Eiter climbs Hades (9a 5.14d) at the Götterwandl in Nassereith, Tirol, Austria.

“In spring 2014 I checked out the route Hades in Nassereith for my first time,” Eiter writes. “Due to the sustained climbing on small crimps this
route fitted my style quite well. Nevertheless, I had some difficulties with two remarkable parts where the original method consisted of moves which
were too big for me.

“So far Hades was only climbed by men, who were much taller than me. Thus, I needed some time to find some small holds in between that helped me overcome
these big moves.

“I … returned much stronger in autumn. The ascent happened then surprisingly fast—and I will never forget this special moment!”
