Description 

This isn't a very pretty climb, but I found it really interesting. The book says it's easier after the 2nd bolt. However, I found it to be a different kind of difficulty.
The route starts out bouldery up to the 2nd bolt. In fact, stick clipping the first or placing a nut in the crack before it will do a lot for keeping this route comfortable. From the 2nd bolt, you have to follow the odd crack up and left where you'll find that the crack climbs like a sloper rail in the middle, making it pretty technically difficult.

Bemerkung: Cool bouldery start, left hand in the pocket next to the 1st bolt, right to crack in front of you, twist left, grab small block up with left, and pull up onto shelf to clip. Rest, two pockets to slopey crack, balance up and left to right hand finger jam to clip anchor.

Location 

From Dächlesverschneidung, head around to the right to locate another bolted dihedral which is Borschertweg.

Protection 

4 bolts + ring anchor
