Description

5 pitches of slab and face climbing on grippy gneiss. Belay stations were comfortable enough for 4 people (though belay #4 was tight). Pitches vary from 35-45 meters. The crux is at the beginning of pitch 3. Pitch 5 is steep but feature rich, short, and fairly easy. (rated 4c/5.6, but seemed easier)

Rap off (2x 50m or 2x 60m)

There are 2 dozen sister climbs on this same cliff. For more information I highly recommend the Filidor Plaisir Ost climbing guidebook.

Location

Park at the hairpin lot 1 km uproad from Alpin Center Sustenpass. Walk 20 minutes due north on a trail to the base.

Parking lot GPS location = 46.73287 N, 8.41328 E

Protection

12 Quickdraws, your favorite anchor material.

Rap rings at every belay station.
