Winter is knocking on the door at the high altitude areas of the Alps. When the conditions are good however, they are really good and things can go down.As always this time of year, Martin Keller is working his long time project at Sustenpass, Switzerland:
After I injured my finger (still not ok) and a "special" trip to Rocklands this summer, I just got into shape right now to tackle my 8-year "Highlander-project" up there at Sustenpass again.
In between I managed to send a project on the left of the Traumlandwall, which I already tried last fall but was not able to send (but not before also going down once on the last move on this one as well).
80 km west and on roughly the same altitude, ~2000m, Paul Robinson made short work of another short power problem, Bernd Zangerl's Anam cara, ~8B+, at Silvretta, Austria. Paul had a session on it last year, and now finished it off in a little more than an hour.
