Back in April, Nalle Hukkataival made the coveted first, and so far only, ascent of the sit down start to Klem Loskot's classic Bügeleisen in the Maltatal in southern Austria.
Nalle had to make several trips to get decent conditions on the notoriously wet steep wall, but in the end he got lucky as a powerful Föhn dried it up in no time. Needless to say, he didn't waste the opportunity.
