Arnold had previously set a speed record of 2 hours and 28 minutes on the Heckmair route on Eiger North Face in April 2011.

For his most recent sends, Arnold went to Breitwangflue on the 17th and redpointed Flying Circus (M10), Mach 3 (M9), and Crack Baby (WI 6) in a day. The three routes combined add up to 655 meters and 20 pitches of hard ice and mixed climbing. Flying Circus was the world’s first M10, done in 1998 by Robert Jasper who also established Mach 3 in 2003. Crack Baby was the handiwork of the great Xaver Bongard in 1993. Bongard was known for many hard first solos on El Cap and for the first ascent, with John Middendorf in 1992, of Grand Voyage on Great Trango Tower in the Karakoram. Bongard died BASE jumping in Switzerland in 1994.
