This climb offers solid rock, good belay ledges and amazing views of the surrounding mountains and glaciers. The crux is on the last pitch. A 70m rope will allow you to connect some pitches.


From Ratsek Cabin, hike up and past the climbers camp. Once the trail splits, stay left toward the main wall. To find the start, scramble up the steep scree field and up an easy rock section to the base of the stacked columns. Look for a small pillar that has broken and is leaning into the wall. There are many variations but the climb basically just goes up the stacked columns.


15-20 alpine draws, full set of nuts, doubles to a #4 Camalot.
