Description

One of the longest routes in Grazer Bergland. The first 3 pitches follow easy terrain along a ridge to a flat grassy seaction (here optional bail to "Drachenhöhle" hike on the right). After pitch 3 move the belay 20 m to the right next to a commemorative plaque. Pitch 4 is relatively steep and harder than the previous pitches. The fith pitch sucks (steep grass and loose rock, no protection) and serves to connect the first ridge to the main wall.
Pitches 6 and 7 are easy, but entertaining and lead to the traverse pitch that involves a downclimb to the anchor at the start of the 9th pitch.
This pitch is the crux. The start of pitch is pulling a roof and the rest is vertical to semi-vertical technical face climbing. Many bolts allow this pitch to be climbed A0, 5.9.
The remainder of the pitches to the top are well protected and offer a variety of fun challenges from slab, to crack to roof.

Location

From the parking lot head south for 50 m to the start of the "Drachenhöhle" hike. Follow the signs for about 45 min until you hit a steep rocky gully protected with bolted chain handrails. At the seventh bolt look to the left for the start of the climb. A goldish colored bolt 5 m of the ground leads to a handfull of Sanduhren which may be easier to see from above than from below.

Protection

Bolts, Sanduhren and bolted belays.
