Hohe Wand 21.2.

 Sonneuhrwand at Hohe Wand. Sonnenhur (7- UIAA) follows dihedral systems on the left side of the photo. 

The weather was pretty warm considering it's still February. No need for long johns. 

 Anu and some elegant moves on pitch 3

The route was pretty sustained, (7-, 7-, 6-, 7-, 6+, 5+, 5) This was the last 7- pitch.

Me on the sixth pitch. The last 60 meters of the route was pretty juggy, or "schön" as the guidebook says.

 We climbed with only one 50 m rope, (and didn't have Sampsa with us to arrange the transport...) so we had to hike back to the car. On the way we found a restaurant so it took a bit longer than expected.

 The spring is on its way
