Stephan Vogt spent over 20 days in a span of five years projecting one the most famous sport routes. Watch the Frankenjura send below.

It’s often acknowledged as the world’s first 5.14d, Wolfgang Güllich actually gave the route a UIAA grade of XI.

It’s considered by many to be something of a benchmark for the grade. It’s also famous for its style, involving long dynamic moves off mono pockets.

Güllich invented the campus board to train the specific strength needed for it.

Milan Sykora bolted this line in the 1980s with a different start. Güllich climbed it in 1991. He used a 16-move sequence and a more direct start with a dynamic jump into a two-finger pocket.

Dai Koyamada used a different sequence with only 11 moves.
