Südpfeiler route

Südpfeiler route

Description

This route was first technically climbed by Seppi Spöck and Jürgen Vogt in 1963 and rated 5b/A1. After being restored by Reini Percht, HP Widmann, Christian Hechenberger and Simon Berger, Simon and Christian were able to free climb the route in 2019. The two lower pitches are challenging. The steep, overhanging dihedral is well secured with bolts and normal hooks. By and large, the rock surface is good except for a few brittle passages. Some friends are recommended as additional safety equipment. The route first extends through the yellow dihedral to the right of the prominent pillar edge, then traverses to the left before running slightly to the left, i.e. directly along the edge. In the upper section (from the 8th pitch), you will arrive at the west rock face (Buhl). Ascend this section to arrive up to the exit.
