Hardest of the Alps, the video of Iker and Eneko Pou's climbing quest

03.05.2011 by Planetmountain

The video Iker Pou and Eneko Pou and their search for the hardest routes in the Alps and their meetings with some of the main players: Manolo, Alex Huber and Beat Kammerlander.

In summer 2010 the brothers Iker and Eneko Pou set off for their great vertical adventure in search of some of the hardest multi-pitches in the Alps. The result: Solo per vecchi guerrieri first ascended by Manolo in the Feltrine Dolomites and repeated by the brothers in June, followed by an August ascent of Pan Aroma established by Alex Huber up the immense Cima Ovest di Lavaredo and, in September, a repeat of Zahir 8b+, "traced" by Iwan Wolf and Gunter Habersatter on the massive Wendenstöcke.

What left its mark on the Basque brothers, far more than the repeats of these routes, was their search for hw there perfect lines come to life... ie the encounters with some of the greatest alpinists and sport climbers in the Alps: Manolo, Alex Huber and Beat Kammerlander. Not to be missed!
