South ridge  Sucess!

Daytrip from T├Ątsch parkground via the "old" ridge route -- we found no other start between the downcoming abseil (traces in the snow...) to the left and the ridge itself to the right.
Nevertheless the bolting is quite good for an "alpine" route and as the climb nowhere is harder than 4a...4b you mainly need quickdraws and slings for prolonging them.
Downwards we made one abseil of about 30...35m straight from the summit (where the terrain becomes easier, the deeper you go) and then followed the old blue marks, slightly lefthand downwards. Finally another step is to be negotiated, once 45m oder twice 20...25m. 50m double ropes help to overcome the rimaye as well.
