Austrian climber Alex Luger has made the second ascent of Beat Kammerlander's Prinzip Hoffnung E10.

The route on the Burs Plate in Austria was first climbed by Kammerlander a decade ago as a sport route at F8b/+. Last year he climbed it without the bolts and estimated a mighty E10.

Alex Luger has repeated the feat.

Speaking on Planet Mountain he said (excuse the google translation!)

"After a sleepless night are physically tired from the two attempts the previous day, but mentally harder. Again I go to the plate, the thermometer measures -4 ° C and what follows is a fight perfect, a perfect time!"
