This 15 foot hand crack takes nice gear and puts you in some funky jam postures. When the crack fizzles out, move left across a short ledge, place some medium / small stoppers or tricams, move left around a bulge, clip the bolt, and move up through some funky sloper moves to gain a nice big ledge. Throw in a baby cam or two and top out, then move left to the anchors for Schwarze Weissnergrat.


This is the obvious 4 inch splitter crack on the righthand side of Höhe Hinterland just left of the Giant Man roof.

Belay in front of a small group of trees before the short slab leading up to the climb.


Two or three Big Cams (3, 3.5, 4), small/medium nuts or tricams, and some baby cams to protect the easy topout.

The quartz and mica dike and other rocks is like Gem Hunter and not as spectacular.
The dike can go direct at extreme difficulty and very unlikely without bolts. This is more technical than pumping and pulling up a climb. Won't feel nine without being technical.
