Grade Route

"easiest" way through the southface. was done in winter solo when snow and ice packed the loose rock. mixed climbing and drytooling up to III is necesarry. this can only be done when a snow/ice band builds up from the hell canyon to the summit. sometimes nearly vertical. no chance or time for belay. the route must be finished before the sun comes in round 1200, so you should start at night. massive danger of avalanche and rock/ice fall.

very adventurous alpine climbing to the end of the big hell canyon called the "Scherengraben". this is the steeper right wing of the canyon. loose rock, bad belay and stonefall, but a spectacular landsape. did this with holger and elivisia (rip), who made this project possible. no second ascent known. the first part of the canyon is UIAA III ropeless climbing for about an hour.
