Austrian climber Alex Luger has made the second ascent of Beat Kammerlander's Prinzip Hoffnung E10.

The route on the Burs Plate in Austria was first climbed by Kammerlander a decade ago as a sport route at F8b/+. Last year he climbed it without the bolts and estimated a mighty E10.

Alex Luger has repeated the feat.

Speaking on Planet Mountain he said (excuse the google translation!)

"After a sleepless night are physically tired from the two attempts the previous day, but mentally harder. Again I go to the plate, the thermometer measures -4 ° C and what follows is a fight perfect, a perfect time!"

"....and climbing such a line in the "cleanest" of styles represents a dream come true. After the first sporadic attempts on toprope in Spring 2009...." Eh?

Personally I think we should be applauding the fact that some mainland Europeans enjoy a trad outing now and again. And so what if it was a headpoint? It's quite a tricky route.

By '"cleanest" of styles' he is obviously referring to the trad nature of the is a translation!
