Alpenglow doing its biz, Oberreintal


Upper-Bavaria is home to some of the most classic routes in the Northern limestone alps. Pioneers such as Hermann Buhl cut their teeth on the Oberreintal towers.

Getting There

Pleasure climbing at its best, this route has a little of everything. It's mostly slab (as the route's name implies), but the 10th and 11th pitches offer up more vertical and slightly overhanging climbing.The crux is on pitch 4 and climbs thin side-pulls to reach a juggy ledge. It can also be aided (and is therefore obviously well protected) or dynoed. The rest of the pitches typically range between UIAA 4 and 5 (5.5 - 5.8), though there are several easier pitches, including an unprotected walk ...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
