Karoline Sinnhuber Climbs V12 Highball in Austria

The top comp climber retired at the start of the year

Karoline Sinnhuber recently climbed a tall V12 in Austria’s Zillertal called Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door. Sinnhuber was a top comp climber but retired from the circuit at the start of this year.

Tobias Haller made the first ascent of Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door in 2010. He described it as “one of the purest and uncompromising highballs I have ever done.”

Sinnhuber worked on the highball on toprope in the summer of 2018, but couldn’t piece together the first hard three metres until this fall. Visit her 8a.nu scorcard for more sends here. Watch the send below.
