Pitch 1: 6b, up a steep slab on reasonably good holds.
Pitch 2: 6c+, continues up the slab to its end and then into steeper terrain above on good holds. There is a distinct crux move just above the end of the slabby section.
Pitch 3: 7a+, from a comfortable ledge (anchor shared with the Blauer Kaefer), the route traverses right, onto an overhanging slab of rock that juts out into space. On the slab, the line continues up and to the right. The holds are all there and the moves are fairly straightforward, but it is pumpy as hell, and the exposure is extraordinary.
Pitch 4: 6c+ 1 p.a., vertical, compact rock with very small, sharp holds defines this pitch. The one point of aid is fairly early on, and the difficulty of the pitch comes in the couple of meters that follow, on very thin, very sharp holds, before traversing up and right on somewhat easier ground.
Pitch 5: 6c+, another good pitch, again on vertical sharp rock, slightly less compact and more featured than the previous pitch.
With regards to the abseil, take note of the comments to the area!
