Ramolkogel Alpenglow (W Face) - Photo by Lodewijk

From the Ramolhaus, you go on the normal route until the saddle between Anichspitze and Mittlerer Ramolkogel. From this point, traverse down on the Latschglacier to the foot of the northface. 1 1/2 h.

Route Description

The starting point is just 30 m on the right side of the rockpart in the iceface. Pay attention to avalanches in the gap! At the beginning, it goes up to 50°. After 100 to 200 hm, you have to traverse to the left up the hanging glacier. The next 100 hm are less steep (35°-40°). Then the face becomes 50°, and it has a little bit hard ice. Just here, you can perhaps need a rope for one ropelength. The end of the northface is again less steep. Altogether it is 400 hm.

It is good for beginners of northface-climbing and as training. In contrast to the northfaces in the Pitztal region (Hinterer Brochkogel, Petersenspitze) at the same time, the ice of this northface is less pure and hard, but mostly firn.
