From there, they explored the option of climbing up the black face, but found it at they time to be too steep and featureless to climb without protection, so instead Brad traversed left around the corner and across the "Hinterstoisser Traverse" pitch and into the top of the big dirty gully. The nasty chimney corner seemed the only plausible passage out of the gully and up to the roof above, so Ryan took the lead with the drill strapped to him, and added two bolts on the way up through the wet chimney (5.8). Ryan's first desire was to climb straight through to the "Wünderkind roof", but was not 100% confident about the integrity of the blocks on the face, and did not wish to send anything big down to Bradley below. For the time being, they decided on safety first and looked for an alternative line up "Hanzel und Gretyl" which Ryan led through adding a few bolts at the top to top out on.
You can either top out at the Crow's Nest and belay off the trees, or lower out through one of the Höhe Hinterland escape lines.
