Here are a few stories that are making headlines today.

DAVID LAMA

David Lama has climbed a bold new route up the north face of Hohe Kirche in the Valsertal Zillertal Alps, Austria. The 400-metre route is called Nordverschneidung and is graded WI4, M5, VI. “On the whole, climbing is pleasant and never really too difficult. About 100 m of 90° ice, at times quite exciting past some daggers led to some easier terrain,” wrote Lama on Planet Mountain.
