Bruderliebe (8b/b+) new route by Hans Joerg Auer

South Wall of Marmolada (Dolomites) - VIDEO

08 October 2011   Hans Joerg Auer, partnered by his brother Vitus, has managed the FA of  Bruderliebe (800 m 19 pitches 8b/8b+) a new route on the South Wall of Marmolada, on the right of the Pillar  Dorso d’Elefante. On August 21st Hans Joerg did also the FFA of the route in 11,5 hours climbing.   Hans Joerg wrote in his website report "After many days of trying, many falls, hours hanging out on the wall, times of rebounds but also after enjoying the feeling getting stronger, finally August 21 was my day. I really had tears in my eyes, clipping the belay after the send of the crux pitch. “As in the time-lapse photography, pictures from all corners of the south wall run by my brain. Even if there are still just 600 metres height up to the summit. I know that I am not deprived of the today’s success any more. Once again I shut the eyes before I continue pulling the rope. After 11,5 hours we shudder mutually the hands. Tired and eroded we sit on the summit and enjoy the last rays of the sun. I can´t catch it yet, however, just I experience one of my nicest moments in my climbing life and coincidentally on my mountain. Thanks so much Vitus.”   On August 24th, partnered by Gerhard Fiegl , Auer managed the FFA of  Colpo di Coda, route opened by Maurizio Giordani on  2006, and suggests grade 7b. He also opened 4 new pitches at the exit of Schwalbenschwanz, naming the variant Coco Jambo, 4 pitches 6c+     "BRUDERLIEBE Location: Pilastro Dorso d’Elefante/Marmolada South Face/Italy Length: 19 pitches Total vertical gain on rock: 800m Proposed grading: 8b/8b+ Protection: Camalots up to #3, pitons, bolts (where necessary) Character: Amazing line on slightly overhanging terrain on the lower part.
