DescriptionNot as spectacular as the neighboring Zeichen der Freundschaft, but certainly a worthwhile climb. In contrast to the Zeichen route, the difficulties in this climb are defined more by thin face climbing sections.
The crux early in third pitch (6b) is a thin and technical sequence up to and over a bulge on small sidepulls and crimpers. We found the crux moves in the seventh pitch (6a+) to be the most challenging of the route, as it traverses around a large flake using high underclings for the hands and counterpressure alone to keep the feet pasted on the smooth, near vertical face. Otherwise, we thought the grading was a bit on the soft side.
