It’s funny that Nalles ascent of Silbergeier had alot of comments (most of them weather one should comment as it is “only” 8b) but this one has none till now.
This one however really is cutting edge stuff! It is a long alpine route and some of the hard pitches come way up there (p17 8b, p19 8c, p20 8b+).
Congratulations to Alex who has shown again that he already is one of the most accomplished climbers out there with just 21 years of age.
A big first ascent that goes along with most beautiful alpine lines out there.
Rumours of some funny ethics though. Apparently the pitches were not led in order or something? Can anyone elaborate?
According to Roger Schälis Website it was a redpoint.
