Hansjörg Auer, tres grandes paredes de Dolomitas en solo integral

Hansjörg Auer escaló en solo integral tres vías en tres grandes paredes de Dolomitas en un único día, el 8 de agosto de 2016. El escalador austríaco invirtió un total de 12 horas y voló en parapente de una pared a otra.

Las vías escogidas por Auer fueron la ‘Vinatzer/Messner’ (800m, VI+), en la cara sur de la Marmolada, ‘Abramkante’ (500m, VII-), en el Piz Ciavazes, y ‘Große Mauer’ (300m, VII-), en la cara oeste del Sas dla Crusc. En total, 33 kilómetros recorridos, 3.600 metros de desnivel positivo acumulados y 1.600 metros de escalada.

When you find the fresh printed new guidebook of Marmolada in your postbox, you start looking at it immediately and suddenly you get emotional: ~ In 2003 I walked up from Malga Ciapela to Rifugio Falier, the hut below the Southface, for the first time. Very long I’ve waited for this moment. Too much I'd read about the nearly three kilometre wide and 800 metre high face. Perfect grey limestone full of pockets. ~ This face changed my life. Moments of joy, moments of success, moments of freedom, moments of loneliness and moments of tears. This face gave me the opportunity to fulfil my deepest dreams and to experience how this feels. I was able to do things filled with an imense personal commitment and these things gave me the self-confidence to manage my everyday life beside climbing and mountaineering. All the Marmolada climbs together shaped my personality. Climbs with my brothers, my best friends, my girlfriend, climbs alone but also climbs with someone who I've lost forever. ~ I’m lucky to come back to this face whenever I want, lucky that it’s there and lucky that I’m still dreaming so much of climbs which I need to do before it's too late.
