route_description

South Ridge. Abseiled down from the top.

weather and conditions


Sunny all the time


Excellent conditions. Mosty sound and dry rock. Approached from the Bergseelücke after Bergseeschijen climb. Used 10 quickdraws and couple of small/medium cams. Some medium size slings. Single 50m rope. The start is a bit difficult to spot, as you need to go around the bottom and up the a small notch. The correct route starts some what to the right and up (bolts higher up) and a more difficult route (5c/+) starts directly up.

timing

Started climbing 1pm. Climbing time 2:30h, absail and walk-off 1h.

personal comments

The crux pitch is quite runout with only bolts and felt quite difficult for the grade. All doable with only quickdraws, but a few cams reduce the runout bits.
