The complete Fire waltz by Perchman

Jochen Perchman has, after a three month siege, made the 3rd ascent of Harry Röker's Feuerwalze, 8B+, at Schwäbische Alb, Germany. On his scorecard, Jochen says he did the first part 13 times and the second part more than 20, before he succeeded. The 2nd ascent was made by Alexander Förschler three months ago.
