Swiss climber Dani Arnold has repeated The Hurting (XI,11) in Coire an t-Sneachda, Cairngorms.

The young Swiss mountain guide shot to fame last year with his impressive speed-solo of the North Face of the Eiger in just 2 hours and 28 minutes.

He commented on his ascent of The Hurting on Planet Mountain:

"It's the hardest I've ever climbed up to now but there are certainly even harder routes out there. On routes like this the style plays an important role. And since I haven't got the same experience at placing trad gear as the local climbers I'm really proud of my ascent."

The Hurting, first climbed by Dave MacLeod back in 2005, was repeated by Andy Turner and Greg Boswell early last year.

That doesn't make sense. Surely the first repeat is the hardest repeat.
