Quattro stagioni 8c freed by Trottmann on Engelberg
On 26/09/2012 Matthias Trottmann freed the sports climb Quattro stagioni, 8c 40m, on Engelberg, Switzerland.
Nine year's ago Swiss rock climber Matthias Trottmann bolted a spectacular line through the Engelberg Bauch, the steep overhang located at circa half-height on the Fürenhochfluh peak in the Engelberg chain which hosts numerous difficult sports climbs such as Putain le systeme 8c, M4 8b and Air 8a.
At the time the new route was simply too difficult and, taken in by other projects such as his nearby multi-pitch 6.4 seconds, this line remained untouched until Trottmann's free ascent this autumn. Success came about on his 9th try, the route is graded 8c and is yet another testpiece in this beautiful, difficult to access "top-end" crag located 300 metres above the ground!
