This scary route starts with a 15 to 20m traverse nearly at the base of Direkter Normalweg, and heads left on easy though unnerving ground to the obvious crack. Climb the crack. You'll know if you did the wrong crack if there's not a giant rappel anchor at the top of the crack.
The direct start is supposed to be around 5.10c, but I didn't do it. It looks like the quality of the route would increase with that though.


The farthest route to the left on the south side, according to the book. It starts getting pretty overgrown after this.
