Cédric Lachat does Yeah Man (330m, 8b+)
First step of the Swissway to Heaven project archived05 July 2019
Cédric Lachat repeats Yeah Man on the Gastlosen and puts the first piece of his project on the most difficult Swiss walls.
Chapter one of the Swiss saga closed for Cédric Lachat who solved Yeah Man (330m, 8b +) on the walls of the Gastlosen. As announced in May, this company is part of the Swissway to Heaven project which involves the ascent of five of the most challenging roads in the Swiss country. After starting to study the various lengths with Melissa Le Nevé, Cédric was accompanied on the day of the rotpunkt by Caro Minvielle. Yeah Man was climbed for the first time in free but several times by Josune Bereziartu and Rikar Otegi in 2004 while Giovanni Quirici was the Swiss ace to make the first ascent on the same day of the street in 2010 and the never forgotten Quirici is dedicated to the repetition of Lachet.
