Albert Liechtfried and Benedict Purner climbed a new route on the 3rd of December in the Tirol area of Austria.

Moonwalk (WI 6, M7) is 1000m long and is on the main ridge of the Zillertal Alps between Hoher Warte (2943 m) und Sagwand (3227 m).

Describing the ascent on PlanetMountain, Liechtfried said:

"A combination of a classic rock-climbing wall with serious and difficult mixed. I still can not believe we did it, my dream came true!"
