Description

Used as a descent from the Mushroom or for BASE jumpers wishing to jump from the mushroom.

Starting from the Eigergeschlecter station walk around the back and follow the painted markings up the bands of rock.

(Fixed ropes in place.) You soon arrive at the col where the Rohtstock via-ferrata tops out.

Follow the faint path to the start of the rock scramble.

Here you should follow the path of least resistance and a series of cairns.

This should take you to a cliff section, to the right of this large band is a weakness in the cliff where you will find a vertical fixed rope section, you may want to rope up here.

At the top of this follow more cairns directing you slightly left to the edge of the North face, where you will soon be able to see the Mushroom.
