By Rock and Ice | April 4th, 2014

On February 12, 2014, Italian climber Jacopo Larcher made the third ascent of Prinzip Hoffnung (5.14a) in Bürser Platte, Vorarlberg, Austria. First climbed in 2009 by the legend Beat Kammerlander, Prinzip Hoffnung remains a true testpiece for both physical and mental ability. The route involves super technical climbing on tiny olds with only sporadic trad gear for protection.
