The German Stefan Glowacz has made the first ascent of his Verdon project, climbing Golden Shower, 8b+ multipitch.
Glowacz had started his project seven years ago together with his friend Kurt Albert, but for various reasons he hadn't had the opportunity to bag the first ascent until now.
Golden Shower runs for 150 metres along the Riviere Gauche wall, for 4 pitches up to 8b+ (7a+, 8b+, 8b+, 7c+). It is likely that the climb will lure here top climbers who are hungry for committed and difficult multipitch routes.
