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. After 3 -4 minutes the line is on the left and the entrance to it is over 20 metres wide. Over the course of its 200 metre length it gradually narrows and steepens before opening up into the low angled terrain above the Dohlennest bar.
