On 12.08.03 the Germans Ines Papert and Hans Lochner carried out the first one-day redpoint of one of the hardest routes on the Eiger, Symphonie de Liberté. The route, a combination of Le Chant du Cigne and Spit Verdonesque Édenté on the Geneva pillar, was first climbed by Robert Jasper in 1999 and graded 8a.

Both the ice climbing world champion and Hans Lochner had previously climbed the upper section, Spit Verdonesque. Starting at 6.30am, the duo needed 14 hours to climb the 27 pitches. Both fell on the crux pitch and then climbed it redpoint.
