Als der 13jährige Mammut Athlet Mirko Caballero im Frühjahr 2014 "Grand Illusion" kletterte, da wurde er bis an seine Grenze gefordert. Er sagt selbst, dass er die Sicherungen vorher legen musste, denn da er den gesamten Riss piazte, blieb keine Hand zum Legen frei. Mit Legen aller Sicherungen von unten während des Durchstiegs wurde "Grand Illusion" erst zweimal geklettert - vom Japaner Hidetaka Suzuki und vom Kalifornier Tommy Caldwell, eine OnSight Begehung hat es bis heute - 35 Jahre nach der Erstbegehung - immer noch nicht gegeben. "Grand Illusion" ist zwar harte Wirklichkeit geworden - für die meisten Kletterer wird sie immer eine große Illusion bleiben.
