Ah Yes!

Very nice! What is the grade of the climb here? How many pitches of climbing like this?

Re: Ah Yes!

The Grade is UIAA V.

Up to 6 pitches are to climb in this Grade. But this won't be the problem. The easy piches with Grade UIAA III are the bad one. Because there is brittel rock and bad protection. And the follow difficult piches (special in the "Ramp") are mostly to climb with Crampons and Ice-tools. From this sadly we don't have pictures, because we must centre on climbing.

Looks like water comes down here.

The rocks are wet here, am I right?
The time was relatively "hot", was it not?
Anyway, water drops are better than falling rocks -as you mentioned upwards.
The Direttissima must be somewhere on the shiny wall-part in the background.

No Stones

Hello Den,
the Rock was wet, thats right. But it was not so warm. This one of the first hard pitch and very low in the Wall. When you reach half up the Wall, there is not longer Water there is only Ice 'n Rock.
