Route Climbed: Northwest Face Date Climbed: Aug. 03, 2002
Doing this mountain in one day from Munich is a long story. All in all it took us 17 hours but it is worth it. Most of the face was in a very good condition - solid ice with a thin layer of névé. So we (Kathrin and me) did not use any belaying. This circumstance enabled me to climb the face in 45 minutes.
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
