Description

A good chimney route which turns into easy wall climbing after you do a short trek through grass/dirt to it. The protection is good, but the spacing between the 4th and 5th bolt in this easy section is pretty large. You should have a good head for this route.
Once you leave the chimney you may be asking yourself, where do I go now? The answer is "straight up". The left route on the arete is Schleierkante, and the bolt line immediately right is yours. Further to the right, on another pillar, is a somewhat easier route which is called Ausstiegsvariante ("Alternate finish") and is exactly what it sounds like.

Location

The furthest route to the right, in the large chimney.

Protection

7 bolts + anchor

Fanny a bit scared a the top of the chimney. You should actually turn around for this move.
