550m, 21 pitches.
The west face of the Totenkirchl is arguably Dülfer's greatest route. He had abseiled the face earlier in 1913, and had made one previous unsuccessful attempt prior to the successful ascent, which took just seven and a half hours, still a good time today. His partner on that day, Willi von Redwitz, commented afterwards: "We raced through, as if we had already done the route before. I didn't even hear Dülfer get out of breath."
In particular the Nasenquergang, or nose traverse, is one of the best known,
most photogenic and most photographed pitches in the eastern Alps.
The route is now equipped with bolt belays and a number of bolt runners.
