Florine and Hirayama on their third attempt last week managed 2 hours, 47 minutes and 30 seconds - the fastest non-German ascent!
Tomorrow is the big day for Hans Florine and Yuji Hirayama. Will they beat the Hubers? Yuji has said that sometime in the future a sub-2 hour ascent will be achieved.
We wish them all the best (luck has nothing to do with it).
Photo of the time and the climbers to beat: Alex and Thomas Huber, a stopwatch, the time and the tree.
