Nalle Hukkataival has repeated another legendary problem at Maltatal, Austria - Klem Loskot's Emotional Landscapes, ~8C.
Klem made the first ascent in November 2002 after several years of trying it, but never suggested any grade. The struggle was immortalized in Udo's classic video below which was shot a couple of years prior to the ascent.
Emotional Landscapes has been repeated once, in 2004, by Martin Moser. However, he found a completely different solution compared to the one used in the video and didn't offer any grade. He only said he had no chance of doing it Klem's way.
Nalle: I'm a little too short to do exactly Klem's method, but I did something close to it."
Apparently there is video footage, so stay tuned.
