David Firnenburg made a multi-pitch route in 6.4 seconds, uh stop. David Firnenburg climb the multi pitch route „6.4 seconds“ (X / X +). It was the second ascent of this line, which has not been repeated for the last 13 years. Matthias „Trotti“ Trottmann first ascented the route in 2006. The route on the Fürenwand near Engelberg is one of the hardest north-face routes in Switzerland. The route has been tried several times, but could never be repeated. Last Saturday it was time and David was able to send the second ascent.

„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“
