Babsi Zangerl & Jacopo Larcher Send Heady Trad Testpieces in Scotland

Watch as Jacopo Larcher and Babsi Zangerl head to Dumbarton, Scotland and send two of the country’s most challenging and heady routes: Rhapsody (E11 / 5.14 b/c) and Achemine (E9 / 5.13c), respectively.

Both lines, notorious for their poor protection and massive runouts on extremely techy and powerful terrain, have seen few successful ascents. Jacopo accomplished the 5th ascent of Rhapsody and Babsi achieved the 2nd ever ascent of Achemine, which saw its first and only other ascent by Dave MacLeod in 2001.
