Description [Suggest Change]
The route begins at the same point as both Kostner and Glueck routes, but heads up and right to a traverse ledge protected by a cemented piton. Another piton is encountered for protection about halfway across the ledge, and a few moves up in a short shallow "chimney" lead to another cemented belay anchor. The second pitch gives the route it's name, following a steep ramp and crack, passing another "sanduhr" to a belay atop a shoulder. Pitch 3 addresses a steep but relatively easy arête which is protected by another natural tie-off "sanduhr" on the way to a cemented piton belay anchor. The final pitch stays on the corner for some 5.3/5.4 climbing directly to the summit.
Location [Suggest Change]
This is the right-most of the 3 obvious lines on the Southwest face of the Second Sella Tower, finishing directly on the arête.
Protection [Suggest Change]
"Sanduhrs" and a few fixed pitons. Bring a rack and runners.
