Metamorphose 8a+

Yesterday I climbed Metamorphose (8a+) at Piburger See. If you like crimps, this is a route for you! The crux involves 7 really crimpy moves on bad foot holds followed by a pumpy last section. The crux is a little harder now since a good foothold snapped....the route is still one of the best in Oetztal.
