Max Eder has made the 3rd ascent of Klem Loskot's Intermezzo XV(XY?) gelöst at Plombergstein, close so Salzburg, in Austria.
Klem's original ascent in 1997 was surrounded by quite a bit of controversy as it was made more or less on top-rope. All the bolts were pre-clipped but the anchor. Klem, who was mostly interested in the actual climbing, didn't think this was that important, but went back a year or so later and made a new FA, this time clipping all the bolts. At this time he added "XV gelöst", "gelöst" meaning "solved" to the original name. Here is a video from the original ascent, an excerpt from Udo Neumann's Evolution/Revolution.
