Polish Climber Ola Przybysz Sends Golden Legend 5.13d

Ola cross

Visiting Polish climber Aleksandra “Ola” Przybysz has sent the overhanging power endurance fest Golden Legend 5.13d(8b).  Taking a total of 5 tries, Ola sent the line while putting up the quickdraws.

First ascent by South African climber Paul Brouard, Golden Legend follows halfway up the bronze yellow arete of “The Real Legend” 5.13a , then diverges to the overhanging face for a sustained dynamic finish.

This route has seen just 7 ascents over 12 years, including 5 top Taiwanese climbers as well as a recent ascent in January 2015 by visiting German climber Hans Radetzki. Aleksandra’s ascent marks the first female ascent(FFA) of this classic Long Dong testpiece.
