Plugging my entry to the Petzl RocTrip Photo Contest. It would be really amazing to get to go on this trip. The 50 photos with the most votes will go before a panel of judges and one winner will be chosen. Please give my photo and any others a vote if you think they’re worthy!
Nalle has been throwing down a lot of hard ascents near Maltatal, Austria lately and this one may be his hardest ever. A known project for about 13 years, the sit start to Bügeleisen climbs up a large, overhanging block of stone. Having to fight poor weather conditions over the past few years, Nalle finally found the fitness and conditions necessary to take this project down. In a Facebook post Nalle says the this line “could be the hardest thing I’ve climbed”. That’s saying a lot considering his recent ascent of Gioia, a problem that’s been given the rating of V16 by both its first ascensionist, and Adam Ondra who nabbed the second ascent!
