A route with a wide mix of climbing. The first three pitches are relatively easy. Make sure to trafers left for about 15 ft on a grassy ledge halfway up the first pitch (the next bolt is over a buldge and somewhat hard to see) or belay on this ledge to reduce rope drag. The next 4 pitches are mostly straight. At the end of the 3rd pitch the route Synewel traverses in from the right and continues up to the left of the reminder of the climb.
Pitch 6 (maybe considered the crux of the route) traverses dead right (4 bolts) and then up a chimney on bright red rock (often wet). After exiting the chimney traverse further right on dirty rock to the belay.
The next pitch is straight and steep; don´t veer off to the right or you´ll end up on Elk Meadows. The last pitche follow steep rock to the end of the route with a slight traverse to right. Belay off a tree on top of Rote Wand.

While bolt spacing is adequate, make sure your follower is up for the grade as falls could be akward or dangerous on the traverses.


From the Rote Wand parking lot head left and follow a graveld road towards the wall. At the first turn leave the graveled road to the right and follow a clear visible, steep trail until you hit the wall. Turn right and straight at the first fork. At the second fork head left and you will hit the wall a little bit before Serengeti. Follow up a ramp past the base of serengeti. The next route on the wall is Rupertina (the route name is painted on the rock, but a bit hard to distinguish).
