Sex`n Bolts & Rock`n Roll route

Sex`n Bolts & Rock`n Roll route

Description

Three years after the "Whisky & Cigarettes” route opened, first climbers Andi Dick and Ludwig Brandner decided it was time for "Sex'n Bolts & Rock'n Roll.” This very well secured sport climbing route feels a tick more difficult than its neighbour, which also extends through rough but mostly very good Wilder Kaiser rock. Good luck mastering the key passage in the penultimate rope length. Dick and Brandner rated the ascent 8+. Note: The tour ends very abruptly, which is a bit of a downer. Just as you ascend to the end of the rock face, you have to rappel back down to the foot of the rock face.
