David Firnenburg konnte in 6,4 Sekunden eine Mehrseillängenroute, äh Stop. David Firnenburg konnte sich mit der Route „6.4 Sekunden“ (X/X+) eine weitere schwere MSL-Route klettern. Es war die zweite Begehung dieser Linie, welche die letzten 13 Jahren keine Wiederholung erfahren hat. Matthias „Trotti“ Trottmann konnte die Route bereit 2006 erstbegehen. Bei der Route an der Fürenwand bei Engelberg handelt es sich um eine der schwersten MSL-Routen der Schweiz. Sie wurde schon mehrfach versucht, konnte aber nie wiederholt werden. Vorletzten Samstag war es nun soweit und David konnte sich die zweite Begehung sichern.

„What a fabulous day! This line hasn’t seen any repeat in the last 13 years. That’s a long time. Matthias „Trotti“ Trottmann did the FA back in 2006. It has been tried but never repeated. Last Saturday I could redpoint all pitches in one push, completing the 2nd free ascent. It took me one day to check it out and to clean it and one day to send it. Happy and relieved!

Thank you for establishing this great line and for your support throughout my ascent, Matthias I know that it took a lot of work to drill and clean all this. You had a great vision. My respect to all of your effort!

None of the hard pitches is a gift. 6c, 8b/8b+, 8a+, 8a, 8a, 7c+ and 7b. The send of pitch 5 was the crux of the whole project for me personally. I won’t forget how I somehow pulled myself over the wet holds in its first hard section, nearly slipped in the slab right afterwards and found my way through the long run-out on loose rock. Couldn’t believe it when I clipped the anchor. Adventurous!

This route tested my nerves and it was a great new challenge and experience in alpine terrain. I enjoyed all of its facets and especially its diverse climbing styles. Mainly crimps and slopers in overhangs, vertical walls, slabs and bulges.

I feel like this route needs some more attention. It would be nice to see some of the MP pro‘s and youngsters to give it a try. Come on guys.

Motivated for more! Cheers David“
