Yet another weekend at Hohe Wand

On Saturday the plan was to climb Auf Wildenauers Spuren UIAA 7- /  200m, but the weather looked unstable so we decided to do some sport climbing instead

Rote Wand is a good looking sport sector at the top of Hohe Wand, close to Gasthof Almfrieden

 Looks pretty pumpy to me...

 Rat der Alten UIAA 7+, steep & juggy

A nice rest

 30 meter jugfest, helt okej!

 Rote Wand was pretty nice. A good choice if the weather is not good enough for longer routes. 

Nov 8. and still +22 °C. Sometimes I like Austria. 

Auf Wildenauers Spuren

The route follows  a nice buttress on solid limestone 

Another team close by. Their route didn't look too bad either!

Our route was pretty sustained, 8 pitches and almost all were around UIAA 6+

This is the second to last pitch

 Very nice and exposed climbing

Sport climbing at Rote Wand was nice, but it's hard to beat longer routes. This was my 30th long route at Hohe Wand and I have a feeling that there will be many more.
