Only decribed as (the easiest) descent from the Trettach summit !

Route Description

From summit turn west then nnw soon. Climb down scree, avoid to get too much to the right in the beginning. After 2 pitches down allmost on the (not very clear) ridge, a small chimney leads down to the right. There is a bolt, if you have enough rope you can rappel down approx. 30m from here. Climb down the chimney one pitch, leaving to the left for the last few meters. Reaching less steep rock leads you 2 pitches down to the ground. See picture of NE/NW ridge in NE ridge route desription.

Essential Gear

Rope and some slings / biners if needed. If you want (or need) to rappel a 60m single rope or a dual rope is recommended. If dry a good climber will not have any problem soloing.
