800m. Central pillar of Piz Palu. Start up the couloir to the right of the pillar (threatened by seracs) until it is possible to join the ridge on a snowy shoulder, follow this on the left side of the crest until you reach a snow ridge which leads to the top

βeta: The rock section is normally completed in rock shoes. Due to the aspect of this face, it held onto old snow which made for slow progress in big boots. We started left of the couloir which is very chossy, but safer.

MSchobitz 3 Jul, 2016 AltLd O/S Camped out by the Diavolezza. Left tents at 3am in a whiteout. Base of the route at 5 in better but warm weather, started climbing at 5:30. Simul-climbed the bottom (very snowy) rock section in 3 pitches instead of doing the ice gully. Then simuled the main pillar (which has much better and enjoyable climbing) in another 3 pitches. Remnants of the 'Eisnase' are now nothing but a harsh reminder of global warming. 6 hours shrund to summit. Descended as fast as possible to escape the debilitating effects of the altitude. 11 hours tent to tent. https://someaverageclimbing.wordpress.com/2016/07/21/bumillerpfeiler-td-piz-palu/
