Classic line up the East Ridge. Great position, good views, tightly bolted crux, runout easier sections.

Pitch 1: scramble up the easy ridge with 3 protection bolts. 5.4 40m.

Pitch 2: up ridge passing two bolts in 25 meters. 5.5.

Pitch 3: Either traverse straight left on big holds to a groove (5.8ish) or angle up passing a bolt to the base of a shallow trough (5.7ish). Finish up groove, passing several trees, to belay. 2 bolts in 25m.

Pitch 4: Crux pitch. Climb up steep rock and some large cobbles. Tightly bolted for the area. 5 lead bolts in 35m. 5.10a or 5.8+/A0.

Neat summit with great views.


The very obvious and dramatic East Ridge of Doupianifels. Start right at the toe of the ridge with a low angle scramble. Rappel route.

We did manage, in a juicy rainstorm, to rappel the route in 4 30 m rappels, but, I seem to recall we used anchors to climber's right for the last two rappels and ended up in the trees/weeds to the climber's right of the east ridge.


Sparsely bolted, but, tightly bolted at the crux. There are some trees near the top of pitch 3 that can be slung for protection. Fixed anchors are large single glued-in rings.
