* Florian Eigler was the first to succeed in this extreme classic.
The first ascent without tendon-killing foot hooks (ceiling and rim) was done by Alex Wenner in 1994.

There is still an open project at the Dürrensteinen. Denkmalpflege, formerly already rated 10-and not being climbed after a grip broke off, might even become one of the Pfalz top routes as demanding as French 8b+.
