Description 

A lovely, very mild, very well protected slab climb with south-east exposure.

Through its nine pitches, the climb ranges in difficulty from 3b to 5a, with one 5c move in the last pitch which can be aided through.



Location 

Approaching from Gerstenegg, gain the more-or-less obvious path along the base of the rock, ascending until roughly aligned below a long corner system ending in two large roofs which the last pitch navigates between. There is a bolt marking the start of the route.

Protection 

Perfectly bolted from start to finish.

Wald off to the left, or rappel down the route on double ropes.
