Jitka following the 3rd or 4th pitch of Sophokles....


A great line with some fairly sustained sections, thin moves, loose rock, and an overhang.

Pitch 1. Start off the ledge and climb 30m to the anchor with no bolts along the way. If possible, sling some rounded, dirty, ocassionally loose blocks. The mental crux for sure. Finding the anchor is a challenge.

Pitch 2. 5.10b. Diagonal right on the thin face, staying left of the concavity higher up. 7 bolts or so.

Pitch 3, 4. 5.9. Head straight up.

Pitch 5. 5.10b. Clear the reachy bulge above and follow lichenated, moss-covered rock to the summit.

The summit register is on the northwest side.


Start from the right side of the large ledge on the south face. From the summit, rappel to the left of the top out down Linie des Fallended Tropfens with two ropes.
