8 Waterloo

Great wall climbing on pockets. Crux in the middle before the break. Devious little undercling: first you spot it from below but you can't really do anything with it. Then you move up so it's just in front of your belly. Remembered about it just in time, but then almost botched the onsight because I hastily slapped up to the break, hoping for a jug, but just hitting a sloper. Had to do a few insecure moves to get out of that conundrum. The upper part is easier, just stay a bit on the left and you're good.

I was quite nervous giving it a go without a warmup, but fortunately the first half is quite easy. Didn't make a single mistake and had plenty of time hanging the draws. Even realized there was a different solution for the top section (quite reachy but involving one or two moves less). Happy to have sent this on the last day.

Endurance beast, mostly on crimps and sidepulls with a nice rooflet start (kneebar to clip the first bolt :-D). Already a good deal of polish, but still manageable, with a few committing moves. Struggled a bit seeing what was ahead of me because the sun already came around …

The guidebook got it wrong, saying that the start is 6b and the short pitch after the first chain is 4a or so, while it's the other way round. Delicate friction moves towards the end, all in all quite enjoyable.

While there is a crack in the end, it's still basically a slab. The crack just makes the final section super easy, there's just one move at the beginning which uses the crack to get over a tricky passage. Nice and long.

Looooong 45 degree slab, getting a tad steeper at the end and with a little step in the middle. Quite entertaining. There are chains somewhere on the way, but it's certainly better to just finish to the top (and not really any harder).

Wed 22nd Jun 2022 - Corno Rat
5c A0 5c A0 Via Dell‘Oro

Great line that takes the easiest path through the whole face. Its only fault is the second pitch, which is quite overgrown these days, therefore it's hard to even find the easiest path, which is why I navigated into some fragile structures and loose blocks and ended up at the abseil belay at the start of the route "Tridarat". This is fine, though, you can just climb down a meter to the big rock tunnel and continue with pitch 3, which draws up in a nice arch along the obvious features. Crux is an open crack with jugs but bad (or missing) footholds on the right, followed by a short, well-protected (lots of pitons) traverse to the left under a little rooflet. Pitch 4 starts with a few nice moves into the dihedral before the funny aid traverse (quite certainly, it was originally climbed using rope tension from a visible old ring further up the dihedral) along a steel cable. The short dihedral afterwards is tricky, harder than it looks. Best enjoy the view from the belay of pitch 3 if you plan to abseil, because the last anchor is behind the trees.

6b+ L'organista

Might have been a classic once, but then it got polished to oblivion; in addition, the locals tried to fix it by sprinkling concrete on some footholds. In the original state it might have been a (hard) 6b+, but now it seemed more like a solid 7a. Nice moves on tufas at the start (the only ones at the whole crag), then a devious little section out of the tiny cave, followed by crimps, pockets, sidepulls and finally lots of baked-on concretions. Hard until the very last move. Worthwhile despite the polish, might still be one of the best lines at the crag.

6c+ Paperetta Joe

Might have been bolted just because the lines to the left and right were already polished, since it uses a lot of holds from both. The dihedral at the start is independent and quite challenging, reminded me to stretch more … Afterwards it's lots of crimps, sidepulls, and a crux on some water drop dimples or whatever you might call them, which I solved with a high heel hook on the left and a delicate mantel using the thumb on the dimples. More crimps and a few slits towards the end.

6+ Kreutzer Gedenkweg

Disclaimer: the rating is only valid for masochists. Traverses through the whole crag. It's already a bit sketchy to the first bolt, but the real treat awaits on the way to the second. I basically kneeled on the sandy, sloping ledge with my left leg while selecting the most solid footholds on the right. The second bolt is at least 5 to 6 meters away from the first, so falling there would get you very close to the ground in a big swing, scrubbing against the brittle rock. From the second bolt on, the rock quality improves drastically, also due to the fact that the traverse crosses the sport climbing routes, so the middle section is really fun and reminded me a bit of "Die Gelbe". Set up belay at the original belay bolt before the merger into "Karl Diener Gedenkweg" because it would have been a close call in one pitch with a 50 m rope. The second pitch is then quite short, but still enjoyable despite the rock getting dirtier again.

7 Neue Ostwand

Started via "Weg für Verklemmte", which joins the original line quite soon (at least there are rusty old pegs next to the glue-ins). Had to set up belay on the small ledge below the roof because I didn't have any draws left. Easy traverse around the corner, leaving WFV, then up on the right via the crack. Had to struggle quite a bit with that one. Some of the holds also crumbled beneath my hands, because it's not climbed often. Quite dusty all in all.

Good line along the crack dihedral with nice laybacking. A bigger block at the end of the crack is brittle, but fortunately there's a nice, thin, but solid sidepull to the left of it. Finished via the right-hand exit, which is supposed to be the easier variant, but quite tough for the grade; a few balancy slab moves to the jug, then through the greenery to the summit.

Quite the adventure, even more so (of course) compared to "Frostfinger" due to the traverse over the ridiculous flake (no idea how that thing is attached to the wall). I had not forgotten how delicate and bold the rest of the route was, but even though I knew what was coming, I hesitated a little in the runout to the last bolt.

Cool logical line. The eponymous flake is juggy on the right, but extremely dusty in the crack on the left, which spiced up even more the fact that there's no fixed protection in the lower part of the route. The lonely bolt in the dihedral before the finish is still sensible, though.

6 Emporweg

Stretching the term "onsight" for this one a little due to the unpassable tree. Swung around on rope tension, then immediately continued climbing. Not 100% sure we climbed the line correctly, but since there was an old ring before the arête, it was at least a "popular" variant. Apparently, the first ascensionists originally traversed further left to the end of the chimney, then went up and back again to the arête, but this detour didn't make it into later guide books.

After some research, this is probably identical to "Direkte Ostwand" up to the last bolt, then pulls to the left via the diagonal crack. The guide books indicate that the route goes up further to the left, but that's quite certainly nonsense. Currently there's a wasp nest at the end of said crack. I didn't see any wasps when passing it, so I thought it abandoned, but my second got stung twice and I had to lower him, then somehow retrieve the cam and nut placed right next to the nest …

8 Schwer isd's

Short wall to a no-hands rest on the ledge, then steep jugs on the fridge-sized block. It seems like the whole chunk has moved down a few centimeters over the last years, judging from the absence of lichen and broken rock shards between the block and the rest of the wall. That seems to have caused the smaller block on top to become loose. If you pull hard on it, it tilts towards you … this could end deadly. From there, it's quite a hard boulder with high heel hooks and kneebars left and right. Once you've clipped the fourth bolt, it's basically over but the moss keeps the rock damp, so it was still a challenge …

6+ Emilienriss, Originalweg

(The rating is just for the original start, the crack itself is really good, if you're up for some alpine adventure.) After the little groove, you're supposed to go left just below the crack; I tried that but turned around because of the choss and lack of protection, then traversed left two meters lower. The traverse into the track turned out to be a nightmarish game of peeling off prospective holds, then brushing off grime from the remaining mediocre crimps. Technically, this is probably indeed around 6+, maybe 7-, but you'd need to work the wall with a pressure cleaner before. The upper part went well, though, but the thorn bush above the last bolt is back. Since we didn't have a long enough rope anyway, I stopped there.
