DescriptionThis lonely tower stands exposed and sunny on a hillside east of the road. I would describe the rock as solid, but recently there was a lot of rock that broke loose from the tower and fell to the ground of the valley side. Among the loose rock which fell were also a couple of bolts. The affected routes are Nordwand (and especially the Direkteinstieg), Nordwestkante, Talseite, and Direkte Talseite.
Since I've done all of the other routes here, the list on the left is complete with the exception of these listed (unsafe) routes. Therefore, the routes are sorted starting with the first safe route to the left of the rock fall area and continues clockwise (when viewed looking down from above) around the tower.
Getting ThereFrom the parking lot, walk back under the bridge to the road, cross it and follow it to the left for about 80m. Just as a big basket of rocks the length of the hillside starts, hop up on it and follow the (somewhat vague) steep trail uphill and to the right to reach the base of the tower.
The approach takes about 8 minutes.
