American contender

Todd Perkins of St. George, Utah has put up what´s probably the hardest multi pitch route in the US and also a contender for the hardest multi pitch in the world. The Power of D at Beaver Dam Mountain has pitches of 13d/14a, 13a, 12a, 13c and 5.5. Todd feels that redpointing all the pitches in a row deserves a rating of 14b/8c. Other contenders for the crown are Beat Kammerlander´s Silbergeier, Stefan Glowacz´ Der Keisers neue Kleider, Rolando Larcher´s/Roberto Vigiani´s Hotel Supramonte and Tomas Huber´s The end of silence.
