Schüpbach frees La Röschtigraben in Wendenstöcke

di

Silvan Schüpbach has made the first free ascent of La Röschtigraben (700m, 8a+, 7b obligatory) in Wendenstöcke, Switzerland.

Established in 2011 ground-up during 12 days together with Nicolas Zambetti and his brother Julien, this climbs takes a 700m line just to the left of Via Italia up "perfect limestone" on Reissend Nollen.

30-year-old Schüpbach retuned this autumn together with Vera Reist to make the first free ascent of the route over a three day period - two nights were spent on the large ledge above pitch 10. La Röschtigraben now checks in with difficulties up to 8a+ and 7b obligatory and although protected by bolts, it still requires a trad rack.
