David Lama – First Ascent of Sagzahn-Dihedral

David Lama, the Austrian climber made the first ascent of “Sagzahn-Dihedral“ at Valser Valley, Tyrol, Austria, in January.

Over the course of five years, David Lama had unsuccessfully attempted the first ascent of “Sagzahn-Dihedral” three times. In January 2018, the conditions looked perfect and Lama started another attempt together with Peter Mühlburger from East Tyrol. After six pitches with challenging sections on mixed terrain of ice and rock demanding free and aid climbing, they successfully completed the steepest part of the wall.
