Carrie cruising up the final pitch of Himmelsleite...


Himmelsleiter is a quality route with a crux first pitch followed by a moderate and easy climbing to the top.

Pitch one climbs up and right with varying sections of large cobbles and thin cruxes 4+ bolts (5.10a).

Pitch two continues straight up a water trough with large runouts between bolts but cobbles suitable for slinging are numerous 3 bolts, (5.8).

The last pitch is easy 5th class up a lower angle slab. 2 bolts lead to a two bolt anchor, (5.6).


Follow the same approach as for Ypsiloterafels. Himmelsleiter starts in the center of the south face and climbs straight up for about 20 feet to a short flaring crack. The route to the right that traverses way right at the start is Danae (5.10c).


6 quickdraws and a few runners to reduce rope drag and sling large cobbles is all you'll need for this route. Anchors are large ring bolts. Rap the route to descend.
