Description 

Luftikus is an optional finish to the classic Hannig Mayer GW. If not for an airy runout to the anchor, it would be the must-do finish, as the moves are no harder than the crux of Hannig Mayer GW.

Climb up the slick and technical approach pitch to a good stance below the looming bulge. Make a long clip, followed by a series of huge reaches between mostly large jugs. Take a deep breath and punch it for what seems like way too far, even by Kurt Albert standards, to the distant anchor.

Location 

In the center of the wall, beginning from the precarious man made ledge. Immediately left of "Ringe...", which has ring bolts.

Protection 

Many bolts, yet somehow not enough, to a distant anchor. Expect a long runout at the end.
