Description

Short entrance (A/B) to the entrance wall and steep over it (B/C). Then lightly through an earthy mountain pine belt (A) to the NW wall. Steep and steps up on friction (C), then lighter (B/C) to an approx. 1.5m high, slightly overhanging "mini intersection" (C). Further within the NW-wall (B to B/C), which now is not so steep anymore, a wide grass band (A) leads once more to a rocky upswing. Via this (mostly B, places B/C) to the run-out climb (A to A/B) in mountain pines. Up through mountain pines and rock until you reach the wide path to the Krippenstein. 10 minutes to the summit
