1500m. The 2.5km long ridge that starts behind the Tasch Hut. NB, Guardiana the Tasch Hut recommends alternative final pitches from those decribed in the AC guidebook after a serious accident - ask him for a picture.

Stuart Johnston 1 Jul, 2018 Lead O/S 13h hut to hut with some breaks for lunch etc. AC guide book and Camp to Camp seem to have differing routes. Camp to camp suggests that the "corner that is easier than it looks" is far right above the initial pitch with 2 bolts. We took the obvious corner that is straight above the start of the final bastion, which was definitely as hard as it looks. No bolts but 2 pitons at the start of it (one of which is probably at best a body weight placement so should not be trusted). From there a bit of questing commenced. The party ahead of us appeared to traverse hard left from the top of our corner, but we continued straight up, thinking we were following the AC guide. The rock was steep and compact as suggested but with only one pitch we traverse right to the ridge crest (and sunshine :-)) where the ground became easier. Very cold and windy. Some verglas on the corner we climbed main it feel even harder than expected.

Gawyllie 8 Aug, 2016 - worth noting that the corner in the AC guidebook that is 'easier than it looks' is not the obvious corner above after reaching the terrace. traverse way right until under the crest. the guidebook telling us to go left for the pitch below to reach the terrace when the route seems to go right put us off. upon speaking to others it seems to be a common mistake.

adam 24 30 Jul, 2013 AltLd dnf Great route, but was too icy. It was hard going to the final rock wall, where a guide was turning back because the rock pitches were too icy. We bailed too.
