Green dashes lead to the second, very steep, 26 meter rappel.

Great pics and info, thanks for posting! Extremely helpful to get a better sense than the topos and route descriptions in the MCK books. Did you downclimb because you didn't like the rap anchor here? Aug 8, 2013

The anchor was nice. Just a single glue-in placed by the Austrians, but very well located (Danke!). I was leaning out on it to take the picture.

I was tired of dealing with the rope and took a chance and went for it! The hard spot was down low (almost 5.0). Also, I knew I was going to blow off traversing to Batian. My faithful young porter was waiting at the base and I didn't want to leave him in the dark.

Sorry to be so tardy answering! Dec 6, 2015
