After three weeks of failed attempts due to wet and snowy conditions on the Eiger’s hardest free route, Paciencia (5.13b, 23 pitches), Sasha DiGiulian and Carlo Traversi were forced to make a decision. Continue with the original objective or attempt a neighboring route that offered drier rock. They opted for climbing over waiting and turned their attention to Magic Mushroom (5.13a, 20 pitches). Three long days of effort culminated in the first American ascents by the team, and the First Female Ascent of the route by Sasha.
