Nicolas Favresse, Sébastien Berthe climb End of Silence, complete Alpine Trilogy

di

Belgian climbers Nico Favresse and Seb Berthe have repeated End of Silence, the 8b+ multi-pitch on the Feuerhorn in Germany first ascended by Thomas Huber in 1994. In doing so the Belgian climbers have repeated the famous Alpine Trilogy hat trick.

As was to be expected, Nicolas Favresse and Sébastien Berthe have made swift work of End of Silence, the 8b+ multi-pitch climb on the Feuerhorn in the Berchtesgaden Alps in Germany freed by Thomas Huber in 1994. The Belgians fired the route in a single day, both redpointing the crux pitches after having cycled to the mountain from the Wilder Kaiser massif in Austria

Favresse and Berthe have now completed what has come to be known as the Alpine Trilogy. This consists of three 8b+ multipitch routes all established in 1994 that marked the apex of what was possibile in the mid 90’s: Huber’s End of Silence, Des Kaisers neue Kleider established by Stefan Glowacz in the Wilder Kaiser massif in Austria and Silbergeier in Switzerland's Rätikon put up by Beat Kammerlander.

The first to complete this emblematic hat trick was Stefan Glowacz  in 2001, followed by the late Harald Berger in 2005.Barbara Zangerl checked in with the first female ascent in 2013 and Favresse & Berthe are now the first to do so in a single summer after having reached each of the mountains by bike.
