Climbing film «WoGü» with Cédric Lachat and Nina Caprez | Full movie

WoGü is a legendary multi-pitch tour in the Rätikon and, with difficulties up to 8c, is one of the most difficult in the Alpine region. Cédric Lachat managed the red point ascent of the tour in 2020 - now the film about the ascent is online.

WoGü is a film that offers humorous and interesting perspectives on the daily work of big wall climbing, from both sides of the camera. From the first check-out of the route to the final ascent, the film WoGü reveals the tensions, hopes, falls and simple joys when you dangle your feet over the abyss.

Via the Wogü route

The route Wogü is one of the most difficult multi-pitch tours in the Alps and was developed by Beat Kammerlander furnished from below. The route is waiting in the Kammerlander manner with wide runouts and difficult, obligatory places for repeaters. Beat Kammerlander himself was unable to climb the route red dot. It took a full twelve years to climb the route freely. It did this Adam Ondra, accompanied by Pietro dal Prà.

The route begins with a 6c and 7a length and then consists of 7 pitches in the upper seventh and eighth French degrees (topo below).
