The project “Reclimbing the Classics” of the Swiss mountain sports producer Mammut unites two generations of passionate climbers. Young and old gather to climb six “rock classics” – milestones in history climbing. The people who climbed the six routes for the first time in history get supported by young Mammut Pro athletes.

Episode 5: Grand Illusion 8a+

USA – at Lake Tahoe (CA), between high firs and the High Black Forest you can find “Suger Loaf”, a granite cone about 100 meters height. “The grand illusion” is part of this huge mountain.
Tony Yaniro was the first climber who mastered this ascent in 1979. The only 13-years old Mammut athlete Mirko Caballero climbed the V-shaped rock with a finger-width crack at its base successfully in spring 2014.

Episode 6:  Hubble 8c+

England – the “Hubble” route that you can find in the “Raven Tor” – a free standing rock – is one of the most famous and hardest climbing routes in Great Britain. It was mastered only 4-times in climbing history. In 1990, the 23 years old Ben Moon was the first who climbed through the unique “Hubble” route. Unfortunately the attempts by Mammut Pro athlete Sean McColl took place under suboptimal conditions – but of course, Sean will come back again.
