Description [Suggest Change]
This route climbs a line to the right of Rossi-Tomasi. The 5th pitch is the crux, rated at UIAA Gr. V A0, or alternatively UIAA Gr VI (5.9/5.9+). The first 3 leads are fairly easy climbing at 5.5-5.6; lead 4 is harder at 5.7-5.7+. The final pitches are mainly 5.6-5.7 climbing. This is one of the better "moderates" in the area.
Location [Suggest Change]
Same approach and starting point as the Rossi-Tomasi route. The descent is also the same, except that this route is also an "Abseil Piste" for getting off the Gamsband. There are 3 anchors in place for descent using dual 50 meter ropes.
Protection [Suggest Change]
Bolted and cemented piton belay anchors. Several "sanduhr" threads, several fixed pitons. Bring a normal Alpine rack and extra runners.
