Young Nemuel Feurle masters Prinzip Hoffnung

di

16-year-old Austrian climber Nemuel Feurle has repeated Prinzip Hoffnung, the difficult trad climb freed by Beat Kammerlander on the Bürser Platte in Vorarlberg, Austria in 2009.

34. These are the years that separate Beat Kammerlander from Nemuel Feurle, two Austrian climbers who now have in common Prinzip Hoffnung, the difficult and delicate trad climb located on the Bürser Platte just a a stone's throw from the village of Bürs in Austria.

Freed in 2009 by Kammerlander when he was 50, after a handful of repeats by the likes of Alex Luger, Jacopo Larcher and Barbara Zangerl, this long runout slab has now been repeated by the 16 year old Feurle. Surprisingly, Feurle has only been climbing for 5 years and - perhaps even more surprisingly - this is Feurle’s first trad climb. It’s worth noting that Prinzip Hoffnung offers circa 8b/8b+ climbing protected with nuts and camming devices.

In the past climbed Feurle has redpointed 8c and bouldered up to 8A, and just before his 30 March ascent he repeated the adjacent Drei Siebe. Writing to planetmountain.com, Feurle stated: "I started attempting the route at the start at the beginning of February 2018 and I spent about 10 days trying it on toprope. I managed to repeat it on my 4th ground-up attempt, on the 4th day of trying ground-up. I’d never climbed a trad route before, so this was a very special project for me. The videos of Barbara Zangerl, Jacopo Larcher and Beat Kammerlander motivated me try the line, and Jacopo provided me with a list of nuts and friends that he used for his ascent, and this also helped me a lot. I really wanted to repeat Prinzip Hoffnung because it’s simply a perfect line and, even better still, it goes clean."

Upcoming goals for the 16-year-old? The multi-pitch alpine sports routes in the nearby Rätikon and "in particular Silbergeier."
