Hansjorg Auer on The Music of Chance

Hansjorg Auer has climbed dozens of cutting-edge new routes. In 2012, he established The Music of Chance 5.11b, A3 on the Kristallwand Face in Austria.

The Kristallwand Face was first tried by Hermann Buhl, the legendary Austrian climber.

The route took five days to climb in March 2012. He was joined by his brothers Vito and Matthias, Ben Lepsant, Elias Holzknecht and Berti Gleirscher.

Auer’s soloing career is one of the most impressive with some of the biggest and hardest free solos ever: Solo Tempi Moderni 5.11b 800 m, Fish 5.12c/d 850 m, Locker vom Hocker 5.12a 350 m, and Bayrischer Traum 5.12a 400 m.
