This route is a bitch. The first bolt, though really high, is easy to get to, even though it looks hard. The holds are all good and it tricks you into a sense of ease. The section between the first and second bolts makes you a little more aware that things aren't what they seemed when you started this. After you clip the second bolt, you have the option of climbing on itty bitty crimpy pockets and balancy footwork (left/direct to anchor), or a slopey diagonal crack (right and back left to anchor). Good luck.


When coming into the area from the parking lot, head towards the east-facing wall where Ostwand and Ostverschneidung are located and head down the hill around to the slightly overhanging routes. The two routes in the middle of the wall in front of you are Liesel Maurer Ged.-Weg (left) and Hexentanz (right).


2 bolts + anchor
