DescriptionThis is an easy climb suitable for beginners and older children. Pitch (1) starts out easy at maybe 5.2-5.3, with the difficulty increasing to 5.4 as the angle steepens. Belay at fixed piton. Pitch (2) climbs easy rock past two or 3 threaded "Sanduhrs" to another piton belay. (3) continue upward past a series of threads. (4) keep on going by following the threads. Belay at a stance with threaded "Sanduhr." (5) Continue up the rounded buttress passing more threaded protection. Belay at a 2 piton anchor stance. (6) A short crack is followed to a lowere angle grassy portion of the wall, not at all technical. (7) Trudge upwards for ~ 40 meters where the wall again steepens. Belay at a threaded Sanduhr anchor. At this point the difficulty eases to minimal technical stndards for another 3 pitches, using threads and tied off knobs for protection.
Descend over a climbers path to the Pisciadu Hut for some refreshments and follow path # 646 back to the parking area.
