Kastenwand: the video of Hansjörg Auer and Much Mayr
The video of Hansjörg Auer and Much Mayr making the first ascent of the Mayr/Auer route up the Kastenwand, Pinnistal, Austria.
Last autumn we reported about it, now the video is online: Hansjörg Auer and Much Mayr establishing only the second route up the legendary Kastenwand rock face in Austria's Stubai Alps. As is clear from the clip, filmed from a drone, the rock is extremely loose and Auer told us "Technically it was not very hard, but mentally super challenging to open the pitches and to climb into the unknown. Falling was not an option."
