good moves but would be very contrived to avoid holds and gear in himmelswillen half way up. top section fingery and probably the crux but too easy to bridge across chimney for rest. quite hard for grade if you don't do this though

Top roped it, as it looked poorly protected. I have to say, if you are not supposed to use the crack or pro on Himmelswillen, then this is a desperate and very bold E1. There is only a poor cam placement at half height to protect a very balancy and difficult crux move, then a cam to protect the top out. It was very pumpy on a top rope. Maybe the crack is in, which would make it feel more like E1. Without I'd say E3, it's as hard as banana wall which I lead no probs and a lot more scary.
A better description in the guide might clear things up!!

yeah, yeah, top-roping scum - was feeling weak. If gear in the Himelswillen crack is allowed, this would be a nice well protected E1, without it - a rather contrived eliminate.

Way hard for E1 - sustained and poorly protected climbing.
