One of Albert Precht's most famous routes (of more than 500!) in the Hochkönig range south of Berchtesgaden. 15 pitches of perfect rock. Our first attempt, one year after the the route was first done, failed after the third pitch - weather too bloody cold. Two years later we had another go, but chickened out half way up (couldn't see any more pro!), and put up our own finish up a ramp to the right. Since then the route has been bolted.
