Australian climber Tom O'Halloran makes the second ascent of Schadenfreude (5.13d) at the Pulpit in Queensland, Australia. Lee Cujes established the route (taking 17 days) in 2008, and Tom finished the line after his second day of effort. "It's a really super-cool bouldery route," Tom says, "where it's quite sort of easy climbing, and then you get a half rest, and it throws you into all these really solid, sort of undercling moves and stuff on really small crimps. It's sort of my strength."
