desainmeThanks for the well done zoomed back perspective


Voted 10/10

Is the SE flank like the Thunder Pyramid in that it is equipped with portable handholds. The ridges look good!

I've read the guidebook more carefully now: SE flank has been climbed in 1923 by Dr. Boehm and Dr. Heinsheimer. They rateted the climb with UIAA IV-, but many variations are possible, which may be easier because it is reported that sheep have climbed the mountain through this flank. So I am sorry that there are no alpine gold medals to earn here. Using the ridges (UIAA II+) is more common and surely rock quality is better there
