Whisky & Cigarettes route

Whisky & Cigarettes route

Description

Those who neither drink nor smoke need not avoid this tour, which extends through excellent Wilder Kaiser rock. Throughout this fantastic sport climb, the sunny south rock face unfolds its exhilarating effects. Beware, however, that the 8+ slab section is very demanding. Are you really up to the challenge? If not, you can take a detour via an A0 route to continue. The protection along the way is not optimally placed throughout the entire route (e.g. at pitches 2 and 9, you can use friends and rocks to make the runouts somewhat easier). But over longer stretches this is an excellent sport climbing route.
