"Dietrich Hasse, the main driving force behind the first ascent of the Brandler-Hasse route (known then simply as ‘The Directissima’) scanned carefully every inch of the face when he climbed the Comici route. It was this knowledge of the lines of weaknesses that gave him the courage to start out on his wild journey upwards that was to yield one of Europe’s best and most sought after prizes."
