Robert Leistner, momentarily one of the strongest climbers in saxony switzerland – 2019 he was able to finally redpoint a route he first ascended 14 years before – Die Vertreibung der letzten Idealisten.
The route leads through a massive wall of yellow sandstone called the Nonnengärtner right next to other famous routes from legendary saxonian climber Bernd Arnold who in the first place tried the route Robert now was able to finish.
The movie shows in detail how hard it is to climb a french grade of around 8c without the help of chalk. Conditions have to be right and you have to be absolutely strong and committed to be able to send such a chunk of rock.
