Looking back on the p7 traverse.


Pitches 1-5 (5.8/5.9) go up and traverse right along very grippy slabs. Just follow the bolts. Into the corner underneath the roof.

Pitch 6 (5.10a) is the best pitch. Pull through a couple overhangs in the corner right below the big roof and traverse right a little to the belay.

Pitch 7 (5.5) is much easier and just traverses right along a small ledge.

Pitches 8-10 (5.8/5.9) continue to the top with more slab climbing.

Rappel is climber's right from the top out (about 40 feet I think). You'll need 50m doubles.


Middle of the northern wall in Ueschenen valley.


Fully bolted. Bring 10 draws.
