DescriptionThis route climbs the skinny southwest face of Teufelsturm and puts you a stone's throw from the Metamorphosis monastery. It has solid, clean rock after the first pitch and stays in the shade in the morning.
Two routes share the shallow, crux concavity on the first pitch. After pulling through, keep going diagonally left, then up to stay on Dr. Faust. Pitches 2,3, and 4 are more or less straight up from the anchors, but keep a careful eye out to spot the bolts. Pitch 4 ends on a pedestal on the right arete, just above a slab. Pitch five climbs the huge cobbles up the steep face to the summit with a few hard-to-find bolts along the way.
