Fourth Free Ascent of The Nose!!!
Jorg Verhoeven has made the fourth free ascent of The Nose. After three days, he sent the iconic route after sending the Great Roof on his first burn of the attempt.
Verhoeven wrote on his Facebook, “Yeeeaaaaah! I freeclimbed the Nose!!! In three days, I managed to grab the fourth ascent of this iconic route. I sent the Great Roof first burn on day two and the Changing Corners after two falls the next morning.”
“So incredibly glad. A lot of respect to Lynn Hill for freeclimbing this route 20 years ago. At least the male/female statistics are equalized now, feels like a big chapter has come to an end.”
The only other ascents were by Lynn Hill in 1994 and Tommy Caldwell and Beth Rodden in 2005.
