The route, if climbed, will be undoubtedly one of the hardest rock climbs in the world.
Updating social media whilst climbing is becoming more and more popular, in fact right now you can follow British mountaineer Andy Kirkpatrick who is attempting a winter ascent of the Troll Wall in Norway, as Andy's Facebook page is being updated by his climbing partners with photos as they climb.
