Had a day off so climbed solo from a bivvy spot near the base. Easy enough on the AD route not to clip on. "New" bits were good enough. Would have loved to traverse to egginer if I had a partner.

several discontinous sections of wire. can leave off kit until about 2800m (well above swiss flag), pleasant enough, 2 vertical sections where wire helpful, 2 hours from cable car (well marked path with blue and white paint)

Thought it was an AD (as listed in Valais Alps East) so took up a rack. Ended up climbing it like a sport route, clipping the stakes as 'bolts'. Very straightforward.

I am sure it was a very nice AD but it is now a nice via ferrata and a quick way to the top if doing the traverse to Egginer.

VF but lots of it hidden under thick snow and some anchors undone, good fun but took away some of the excitement.

acording to the alpine club this is an AD, bit of a shock meeting a family of 4 at the foot of the climbing putting via ferrata kit on! still good fun
