On the Matejak Traverse
I'm making the nervous moves around the corner on the "Matejak Traverse." (IV+). This is on the North Ridge of Predigtstuhl (IV+, 16 pitches), at the start of a stretch of some improbably steep climbing for the grade.

At my waist is a rusty piton, but I could place a good nut where my left hand is as I continued up.

You could put up a page of Predigtstuhl. Kaiser mountains are really missing on SP! And they are so beautiful and also the history of alpinism was written there!

Thank you Vid...you are so right about the history, and it's amazing that the little range isn't represented. I'm finding myself to be a bad page creator though, I am too lazy to get all the important details in one place. Maybe with cabin fever in the winter I can do it!
