that's very good
Agreed. More like this would be lovely!
I can dream....
Are you perhaps confusing free-climbing with solo climbing?
Awesome, and in the realms of do-ability for the slightly above average punter.
I know a few Burnley tick-list's that that is on for July!!!
Its that steep people bass jump of the ringband.
Keep them coming mate!
You are a nutter to free climb it.
Big thank you to Jack, who wrote and illustrated the article....and did the route!
It's great when we get sent quality stuff, and there has been quite a few recently.
Ents......did Rad/Jerry/Terry/Dave do the BH?
You are also confusing free climbing with solo climbing.
I am indeed a nutter, but not one who will free the Brandler-Hasse any day soon.
Well, we can all dream I suppose, brilliant photos and story, but for your average weekend punter like me, the good news is that this part of the Dolomites is rich in via ferrata routes, with fixed gear to cover the vertical bits and some spectacular exposures. Happy memories of sun-kissed days and incredibly fast ascents. And a nice little walk around these three spectacular spires, they look even more awesome in the flesh.
Should really have liked to these photos in the UKClimbing.com photodatabase:
