Jasper, of Germany, joined forces with Rathmayr from Switzerland, to climb three challenging faces including a first ascent on B.A.S.E. (WI6), the first ascent of Almendudler (M9+/10-), and then capped off their trilogy with a climb on Crack Baby (WI6). The climbs were all accomplished over a three day period that the men spent in tje Bernese Oberland area of Switzerland.
More details on each of the climbs can be found in the article at The Alpinist. It sounds like all three climbs was a very unique and challenging experience for the two men. When they were done, they had managed to climb more than 1000 meters over the course of the three days in the mountains. Very impressive stuff. Oh, and that picture kicks ass too!
Thanks to The Hardwear Sessions for this one.
