FATMAP difficulty grade
This route is one of the best of the list ! It is combining everything: nice tour up, long and technic ridge climb, and a super good way down.
But be careful, reaching the Schalfkogel is already super nice, but the second part is definitely the most difficult here, especially because it is not often tracked.
For the Schalfkogel we took the normal way up, which is super, nothing special to say.
For the Firmisanschneide, we took the long ridge from the Schalfkogel.
We skied the first part, and then scramble the last part.
It is long, but if you like scrambling, you will like this one ! It is exposed but never too difficult.
Do not forget that you have to go down also on the ridge, which is most of the time harder than going up ;)
