Nalle Hukkataival Climbs Hard Multipitch

Not content with climbing the hardest boulder problems in the world, Nalle Hukkataival decided to get in the multipitch game with a free ascent of the route Silbergeier in Rätikon, Switzerland:

We managed to climb the legendary multi-pitch ‘Silbergeier’ in Rätikon! Partnered with Tomi Nytorp, I climbed the whole route free on June 21st, after having checked out the pitches briefly over 3 days. Quite the experience as it was my first real multi-pitch! Afterwards we got to enjoy the view from the summit on a picture perfect summer day before rapping back down. What a good time and huge respect to Beat Kammerlander for opening such an incredible route!

Silbergeier features difficulty up to 5.13d/5.14a along six pitches of runout limestone climbing.  You can see footage of Nina Caprez and Cedric Lachat on the same climb here.

    14a seems about the right level to aim for for your first multi pitch.
