Description

From the Hoadlhaus restaurant (2340 metres), ski south down the Olympia Abfahrt Damen piste for 1 minute to reach the HoadlSattel col (2264 metres), where the piste bends sharply to the left. At the Hoadlsattel, take your skis off and start hiking southwards along the snowy ridge that is straight ahead. Hike for 7 - 8 minutes on the low angled ridge crest and then, when you reach a vague col as the ridge begins to steepen towards a steeper, rockier section, the line is on the left. It often has thinner snow cover than other lines around here so if it looks thin, it's easy enough to detour to a different line. If there's enough snow, the line starts quite wide (10 metres-ish) and then, after 50 vertical metres it bends right and gets narrower for 100 vertical metres before opening up and fanning out into the open, low angled terrain above the Dohelnnest bar. Ski down to the bar and look back at your line - the angle never exceeds 40 degrees but it looks spectacular from below!
