Panorama Ortler North Face

ENLARGE TO SEE DETAILS! On the left is Ortler North Face (longest ice route in the eastern alps) and the rocky summit. On the right is "Tschierfeckwandl", a secured wall on the normal route. You can see climbers up there. I created the writings to hide damaged parts of the picture. SORRY! Nevertheless I think it is a fine shot.

Great light

... I wonder if there are persons in there right part of the photo. What´s the (maybe iron) construction on the crag in the right part of the photo?

Re: Great light

Yes, below the crack and on top of the ridge are some climbers. It is "Tschierfeckwandl", the crux on the normal route. I´am a few minutes away.

I don't think...

enough has been said about those great trousers. They are almost cooler than the long ice route behind you. :D

Re: I don't think...

Thanks Michael, I hope my trousers will be in this nice 1200m 55° route sometimes ;-)

Re: I don't think...

Yes, I want to do it too! You'd want to start well before dawn and get half the wall below you before any sun loosens rocks. You couldn't pitch it all out, you'd need to simul-climb. Based on my Wildspitze Nordwand experience, if it is really all "blankeis", then that would be very difficult to do.

Re: I don't think...

The Ortler North Face has good conditions very often. Blank ice isn´t very common there.
