On 11 June 2006 the Austrian Hansjörg Auer made a rare solo repeat of one of the most classic routes in the Dolomites, the 850m Tempi Moderni situated on the south face of the Marmolada, Dolomites.

First climbed in 1982 by the legendary and visionary duo Heinz Mariacher and Luisa Iovane, Modern Times heralded a significant way forward in which alpine routes could and should be first ascended.

22 year old Auer had climbed the route twice before with other partners, once in 2004 and once in 2005, but each time he had failed on the crux first pitches due to the biting cold. Armed with a just a helmet, lighweight anorak and chalkbag he set off at 10.15 and topped out, 27 pitches later, at 12:55.

For the record, the route received its first solo ascent three years after its first ascent in August 1985 at the hands of the Italian Maurizio Giordani.
