Mount Asgard, Bavarian Direct. A group of five climbers (Christian Schlesener, Mani Reichelt, Toni Grad, Luck Guscelli and Markus Bruckbauer) opened a new line, Bavarian Direct, on the west face of Mount Asgard. The party reached the summit on August 21 after 12 days of climbing. The first 350 meters of the route negotiated a 70-degree ice field, followed by 650 meters of technical rock climbing up to A3. The route was of high quality on steep to overhanging granite.
