The climbing route 'Golden Shower' in the Verdon Gorge was first ascended in 2012 by Stefan Glowacz. With its 150 meters and difficulties up to 8b+ it is one of the most difficult multi-pitch routes in the area. The one-day redpoint ascent of these four pitches on the extremely steep Maugué pillar is still outstanding. The two climbers and mountain guides Tobias Bitschnau and Christoph Schranz are fascinated by the distinctive and exposed line of the route. So, they decide to tackle the project. The key passages and the quite untypical rock quality for Verdon will demand everything from them.

The quartet with Tamara and Hansjörg Lunger and the two Austrian camermen Matthias Aberer and Stefan Fritsche will be crossing the Braldu glacier in Pakistan with pulke sleds from 31 March 2013. At the beginning the feat seemed to be completely unsuccessful, as large crevasses and huge seracs set them on the way making even just approaching the mountains almost impossible. Nevertheless, on April 10, the group managed to acclimatize by climbing a mountain (5619m) in the Braldu area.
