[VIDEO] Fabian Buhl climbs Déjà (12L, 8c+ max, 400m)
Another very difficult pearl on the perfect Ratikon limestone24 January 2020
Almost thirty years after the opening, Fabian Buhl and Andres Lietha have freed Déjà in Ratikon, a very difficult route that reaches 8c+.
27 years after the opening, Fabian Buhl, accompanied by Andres Lietha, climbed Déjà, 8c+ route in Ratikon making the first free ascent of the route.
This had seen the light back in 1992 when Andres Lietha and Michi Wyser planted bolts on this portion of the 7th Kirchlispitze but failed to climb all the pitches. Some passages in A0 were the only possible solution but the story was not closed.
In November 2019, Andres accompanied Fabian who managed to climb one of the most difficult routes in the wonderful Swiss region. Also note the conditions with which they rose, wind and already a lot of snow at the base or very cold rock.
