CAN YOU HEAR ME? AN EMOTIONAL FIRST CLIMB.

The year 2020 was marked by two sporting projects for the exceptional South Tyrolean climber Simon Gietl. In February, he single-handedly managed to traverse the five summits of the Three Peaks in the Dolomites in two days. Half a year later he manages to free climb the “Can you hear me” route. An emotional and sporting masterpiece because the story behind the route is a very special one.

SIMON ON HIS SIGNATURE MODEL

“The gloryfy G13 are the perfect mountaineering glasses for me! They are stylish, extremely robust and the INCLINOX technology allows me to adjust the temples myself at any time – guaranteeing a completely secure fit! The photochromic CONTOUR lenses also provide the best contrast in any conditions.”

Simon tells us: “Gerry Fiegl from the Ötztal was a very important person in my life. He had a fatal accident in Nepal on 26 October, 2015. When the news reached me, I felt like I’d lost the ground under my feet.

My immediate concern was to keep the promise I made to him before he left for Nepal: he had had the idea to do a traditional first free climb on the Cima Scotoni.

The “Can you hear me” climbing tour (21 pitches, 8+/A2 or 10- free) is very mentally as well as physically demanding! I was supposed to open this route with him and give him my word … but fate just had other plans.

When I finally stood at the summit of Cima Scotoni on 27 June, 2018, after 21 pitches, I was overcome with a roller coaster of emotions. There was not a soul to be seen or heard far and wide and yet I did not feel alone. I said: “Thanks Gerry – can you hear me?” On 15 August, 2020, I finally managed to redpoint the route in one day. This means that the route had to be climbed in one go without falling, hangdogging or pulling up on pitons.

This is certainly one of the most emotional highlights of my climbing career to date. And I’m sure Gerry was there looking out for me this time too!”
