Jakob Schubert boulders 8C

J-Schubert Bügeleisen sit

Sport climbing: Jakob Schubert has repeated Bügeleisen sit, an 8C boulder problem located in the Maltatal, Austria.

Schubert has now raised the bar once again with his repeat of Bügeleisen Sit in the Maltatal, a beautiful alpine valley famous for its ice climbing in winter and for its sport climbing and boudlering in summer.
