On the Ringband, traverse on the right and get to the summit via the Normalweg(4th class).
Long thought to be an impossible wall, Comici proved everyone wrong.
The uber-classic of the thirties - the most famous 6-route.
Comici went back in 1937 and bagged the first solo ascent of the route.
You can pull on gear through all the cruxes. Many pitons on the lower steep part of the climb.
The crux pitch, if free climbed, is the first difficult pitch.
It more or less follows a black strike and then a big dihedral on the right side of the North Face.
