Can be done as one pitch making it the best trad route at Klinger. Exactly 35m from the anchors to the ground.

Tie a knot in the end of your 70m rope to lower off! We came up a couple meters short and lowered into the chimney to the right. The extension is classic and exposed with good gear.

Great route, eats gear, sustained climbing but not to hard. Nice ledge to belay your follower up with killer views of the mountain and the climber. I tied the 2 pitches together with a 60m and belayed from the top, lowered my partner to the ground and did 2 raps to get down...A must do!!!

Did this in one pitch! Awesome route! Bring lots of finger sizes, and lots of slings if doing that! We found that a 70m rope was 30' short, so be prepared for that!
