Description

6b

Consistent and challenging climbing at a moderate grade up the right-hand face of the huge Hintisberg cliff.

P1 6a Straightforward climbing up edges... ~ 30 m with very few bolts and few opportunities for extra protection

P2 6a(++) meandering line with huge distances between bolts. 0.5 - 1 cams would make the crux feel more like the guidebook 6a.

P3 5c+ Rightward traversing and ascending on giant Gunks-like ledges, easy at the grade

P4 6b Go *left* from the belay up a well-protected series of blocks. Apparently there is a right-hand 5c variation.

P5 5c Head right up the namesake zigzagging series of fun crimps. Stop here, don't link with the next easy pitch. Alternatively, go left for a long 6a variation.

P6 5b Scramble to the top for a beautiful grassy topout and soak up the view.

Location

Right-hand side of cliff, not marked on the base summer 2012.

Protection

Sparse bolts. Light rack of cams for horizontals, especially for P2
