Description

Traverse to the left onto this pitch from the last open pitch of the Garten red run (64), past the small ridge to your right. The pitch then opens out and you have a wide open face to descend. It is relatively consistent all the way down, but can be prone to the odd rock sticking out. Towards the end of this pitch there is a small compression followed by a ridge in front of you, or alternatively a gully to your right. The gully is great for bumps, and if you take the ridge ahead of you, you will often find some chalky fresh snow and a last pitch to take you back down to Furgg and the bubble.
