WoGu has serious run-outs, with potential for 20-meter falls, and passages of mandatory free climbing up to 5.13c."   Ondra's father said: "According to Beat there are two pitches of 8c (5.14b), one of 8b+ (5.14a), one 8b (5.13d), one 8a+ (5.13c), and two of 7c+ (5.13a). Adam suggests small changes of classification, somewhere up, somewhere down, but in global it matches.   In 2007, Ondra climbed another Kammerlander's multipitch routes in the Ratikons, Silbergeier (8b+ [5.14a], 6 pitches).
