Bürser Platte, Voralberg -- Austria: Jacopo Larcher has made the third ascent of Beat Kammerlander "Prinzip Hoffnung" (8b/+). Beat bolted it in 1997, but in 2009, at the age of 50, he decided to remove the bolts and climb it with trad gear: he made it one of the hardest trad route in the world. With two 9a achieved, Jacopo - one of the leading Italian climbers - has worked strongly in order to made it. This is the way he describe his last challenge.
