DescriptionThe route begins on the Northwest side of the formation and after 3 pitches, reaches the arête; move to the right (the crux is a traverse beneath some overhangs on a steep face on pitch 3 and is 5.6/5.7, UIAA Gr. IV+). Another very steep section and overhang is overcome before reaching another bolted anchor. At this point the difficulty decreases along with the angle of the rock. The remaining 8-9 leads are on very good, juggy rock.
LocationThe formation is reached from Wolkenstein/Daunei parking area by a path leading to the Juac Hut and continuing on towards the Regensburger hut. Look for a climbers path that leaves the trail and ascends through the trees to the scree slope beneath the formation. Approach the left side as viewed from afar.
The descent continues over the summit to the Stevia Plateau and a climbers path is followed to the Juac Hut, and then to the car.
