Cool

Looks like you got some nice climbing in over the weekend man. This was my 4th ever alpine rock climb, fairly memorable for me at the time. I agree with you that the good sections are too short and the ledges too big to make it a great climb. I have recommended this route to several people new to alpine rock and just breaking into leading 5.8 trad, and they loved it. I'm sure it was a hike for the 2 of you. :-)

Did you guys do the 5.9 or 5.10b variation, or try the 10b Boving Roof pitch?

Thanks Martin!

did not even most of these variations (did not really look hard either) other than the (sweet looking!!) Boving Roof. I'd go do this line again just to try the roof variation. Nice day out, real crowded - everyone trying to catch the last (?) good weekend of fall.
