Approach


Start at Corvara and take the cable car to Crep de Munt. From there take the Valbon chair-lift (or hike up direction F.-Kostner hut). From the top station of the chair lift a good path is visible below the S-faces of Boèseekofel, Zehner and Neuner. Follow this path for about 10 minutes until one reaches a point below the col between Boèseekofel and Zehner . This col is called "Moserscharte". Hike up the gully to the Moserscharte until it's possible to reach a prominent ledge at the base of the very left part of the S-face. There the climb starts.

When we climbed it there was a good visible sling at the base of the climb.

Route Description


Pitch 1: climb up a steep crack up to a ledge then climb righthand for some meters to a stance (5-)

Pitch 2: Traverse right for about 5 meters, then climb up easier cracks to a stance below a chimney (3+)

Pitch 3: Climb up the chimney and the following cracks to the beginning of the great traverse (5-)

Pitch 4: Climb the traverse, stance is below the left border of the overhang above the traverse (5+)

Pitch 5: Climb the overhang (5+)

Pitch 6: Climb the black wall above the overhang then climb lefthand to a ledge. It's not easy to find the correct way at this pitch, there are some pitons in place (5+)

Pitch 7: Continue on yellow rock on cracks up to a stance at a pedestal at the main ridge. Looks as it would be bad rock, but thats not true: very good rock also at this pitch (4+/5-).

Pitch 8: Climb on easier rock up to the top (3+)

Essential Gear


Double rope (recommended), rocks, friends (up to camelot 3), slings, maybe some pitons, helmet
