This route on the south face of the Musterstein is rated VI+. The crux pitch feels considerably harder than that, probably a solid VII. The belays are bolted, and the crux pitch has bolts on the face section. There is steller crack climbing in the upper pitches.
My partner is circled at the bottom of the picture to give a sense of scale. The two red dots mark where I fell and where I ended up on a bad, bad day in November 2005. Yesterday we finished the route. If you believe the route book, it was the first climb in 3 years?
