Pirmin Bertle adds 8c+ to Jansegg in Swtizerland


Pirmin Bertle has made the first ascent of Le lézard communiste (8c/8c+) at Jansegg, Gastlosen, Swtizerland

Outstanding autumn conditions proved the key to success for Swiss climber Pirmin Bertle who recently mande the first ascent of Le lézard communiste (8c/8c+) at Jansegg. This 40m wide, 15m high, slightly overhanging face located at 1800m opposite the famous Gastlosen ridge hosts calibre routes such as Trivial Pursuit (8b), Excellence (8c), Cryptocommunistes (8c) and Le roi lézard (8c+), and Bertle's latest creation is a logical leftwards finish to Le roi lézard. 15 attempts were needed to send these "crazy moves", and while the chosen exit offers a bouldery 7C+ crux, an even harder alternative holds an 8B/8B+ boulder which might well translate into a 9a+ sport climb. Next summer perhaps!
