Roland Hemetzberger has made the first ascent of an old Stefan Fürst project at Achleiten in the Austrian Tirol. He suggests 9a+ which would make in one of the most difficult in the country.

After 20 years as a project I was able to send it today. I invested so much time in this piece of rock I can't believe it...
For sure my hardest climb I ve ever done and it's a big honor for me to freed this old project from "Stefan Fürst" I don't know how hard I would suppose around 9a+ what ever rad one... cheers

25 year old Roland is no stranger to hard climbing having done at least three 9a's, 8c+ trad and 8c multi-pitch. As far as I know, he has yet to name the new route.
