8c+ Multi-pitch by Fabian BuhlFri Night Vid

© Petzl

This week's Friday Night Video takes us to Ratikon in Switzerland. Fabian Buhl attempts the route Déjà, which was bolted in 1992 by Michi Wyser and Andres Lietha. The pair spent two years bolting the line and after attempting the route realised that they couldn't climb the crux pitch, so left it as an A0 aid climb. Buhl spent a couple of seasons working the 400m line and climbed the first free ascent in November 2019.

Rätikon is in Switzerland, not in Austria.

I think the pin on the database map is in the wrong place...

Rätikon is right on the border. The Kirchlispitzen belong to Switzerland.

Great looking line . Would be more impressed if they clipped their own quick draws
