250m, 7 pitches.

Rockfax Description
Dynamic and varied climbing make this another popular route on the face. The route is sometimes called the 'Route of Friendship, Schubert and Matthies' in memory of their friend Harald Siebold who died in a climbing accident. Equipped stances and some fixed gear.
Start 20m left of the huge rift in the rock, at the base of the rightwards-trending overhanging corner-crack below a series of roofs.
1) V+, 30m. Climb the steep corner then exit left at a peg. Climb cracks direct towards the roof then traverse right below it and move up to a stance on its right edge.
2) V, 40m. Follow a long crack, moving right into a short corner then back left into the crack and pull through a niche to reach a ledge.
3) VI-, 40m. Climb a corner-crack left of the ledge to a small pulpit. Follow a crack direct then left again to a stance in the yellow crack.
4) V-, 40m. Follow the yellow crack right to a pulpit, then move back left. Climb direct up the well-pegged wall above to a bolted stance.
5) V, 25m. Traverse left around the arete then climb direct to a ledge.
6) V, 45m. Move diagonally right from the ledge then climb a crack to another terrace on the right. Step right and climb direct, keeping left of a bulge until reaching three pegs on top of a pillar below an overhang.
7) IV, 45m. Traverse right below the overhang then move up and back left to a ledge. Climb direct to a niche (possible belay) then exit this left and continue direct to the ledge.

Well equipped stances, many pegs in the harder areas. Tip, take 4-6 extendable runners; also good for threading the pegs rather than using a snap gate.

Awesome route. Had to bail a couple of pitches from the top due to showers coming through. Lead both the crux pitches which were fantastic and quite sustained. E1 5b I reckon.

The Ivanator 25/Jul/12 AltLd dnf

Did first 4 pitches (including both crux pitches) before rain forced an abseil retreat. I only led p2, but managed to second the rest cleanly, good leads on 1 & 3 from Jez. Several 5b sequences and sustained so easily worth E1 in UK money.

Same route as Shubert? Fine route but Big Micheluzzi even better.

5 hours. E1-ish.

clipskipper 30/Jun/11 AltLd O/S

Quite excellent climb, with good pitches all the way. Lovely pockets and solid rock, with technical sections to keep the interest.

Led p 1, 3, 5 & 7. 5 hours. An ironic name for us, as we got into an altercation with some Austrian idiots who arrogantly thought they would overtake us & then discovered that they couldn't climb faster than us after all
