Description Suggest change

Even though it could technically be pitch 2 of Calling Wolfgang, this climb couldn't be much different in character. The crux is pretty much right off the belay, with a nice edging sequence that though thin and difficult, will seem straightforward after the trickery on the previous pitch. Be mindful of falling onto your belayer as you weave tenuously back and forth directly above her. After this, it's relatively smooth sailing until a perplexing section that may vary in difficulty (inversely) proportional to height of climber. My memory of the remainder is foggy and/or non-existant, but none of it is as hard as the beginning section. A nice counterpoint to Calling Wolfgang and a must-do if things went well enough on that route that you and your partner are up there already. The two climbs are probably close in difficulty, but the styles vary and as such, individual performance and results may vary.

Location Suggest change

This is the pitch above the route Calling Wolfgang and thus starts from its anchor.

Protection Suggest change

Bolts, plus a few widgets for Calling Wolfgang. I believe this pitch has 8-12 bolts but it has been awhile since I climbed it. A 70m is mandatory for a single rope rappel from Calling Wolfgang and IIRC will also reach from the top of this climb to the anchor on Calling Wolfgang. Always double-check this type of information, obviously.
