BETA PHOTO: Gimmelwald upper part B. z'Vieri C. Southern Cro...


Nice face climbing.

Straight up the face.
Loose flake in lower section as of July 2017.

name: Along with the silver fern, the four stars of the Cross constellation are featured on national flag designs of New Zealand - (the four stars also represent four islands).

warning: The rock on and near this route has not been climbed much yet, and some of the rock is still breakable and loose -- so the belayer and other people should stand far away from underneath the climber.


In the upper part of this sector.
Below light yellow-orange face between broken/textured rock + crack to its left and deeper broken rock + gully to its right.

No fixed hardware for top anchor or for leading.

Top-Roping: For ideas about how to get access to set up top anchor, see the Area description page for this Gimmelwald sector.

Protection for Trad leading is unknown and likely inadequate.
