Everyone who has been to Norway knows drinks don't come cheap there, and this was no exception.
Nico began working the 35 metre line on the Profile wall last summer, but had to return south without the prize due to bad weather (in Norway they just call it weather) and extremely difficult climbing.
After the successful redpoint, he told Planet Mountain:
"It's certainly one of the coolest lines I have ever climbed and the hardest crack I have ever redpointed..."
Although he didn't suggest any grade, this coming from a guy who made the 2nd ascent of Cobra crack, ~8c, should give you an idea of the level.
Planet Mountain has the full story.
