In climbing I do things that I enjoy and want to do not the ones that are currently in fashion.

Stephan Siegrist - 5th person to stand on top of all peaks of Cerro Torre!

Stephan Siegrist - 5th person to stand on top of all peaks of Cerro Torre!


 
Stephan Siegrist and Alexander Huber summited Torre Egger, which made Stephan the fifth person to stand on top of all the peaks in the Cerro Torre group. "To get this last peak it took 1.5 days. We spent the night on a small rock ledge. We had to sit closely together, because this helped to keep us warm. But the pain and suffering paid off and now I feel this wonderful feeling of happiness and relief", said Siegrist. 
The team reached the summit via the route called  Titanic  (ED+: VI 5.10b A2 90 degrees, 950m).  Titanic was put up by Giaroll and Orlandi February 10-11 of 1987.  “We suggest the name of Titanic for our route. The smooth granite of the upper part of the pillar has the form of a great overhanging prow of a mysterious ship“ - said Elio Orlandi (AAJ 1987).

The team has climbed multiple other smaller peaks to warm up, which also included first ascent on Silla.  From January 22-23, Siegriest, Huber brothers and Mario Walder, made the first ascent ofL a Silla's west face: El Bastardo (5.10 A0, 1500m).
