The longest artificial route ever climbed
The beginning of the year 2021 has witnessed a record of true height, the couple of young but experienced climbers Janja Garnbret and Domen Skofic have reached the top of the chimney of the already ablaze power station using the physical phenomenon of the coal thermal plant with a height of 360 meters.
It is the Trbovlje plant in Slovenia, which was inaugurated in 1976 and was operational until 2014.
We must be aware that this chimney is the highest in Europe and has become a center of interest for climbers from all over the world.
13 lengths have been established that are in a range of difficulty between 7b and 8b + (for those of you who are not experienced climbers, know that these are levels of great difficulty).
In addition to the established height record, we could state this record event as the hardest and longest artificial climbing route ever made. As a curiosity we will tell you that this climbing route is called “Never ending story”.
