An okay route which functions okay as a warm-up. The route starts hard. Clip the first bolt and execute the crux move to a stance, then over to the right to clip the second bolt. You've now reached the long namesake crack which this route climbs. Follow the crack up to a pigtail anchor. The climbing stays pretty consistent 5.6 or so after the second bolt.


Right to the right of a sign (dedication to Hans-Peter) where the trail meets the rock you can see the word "RISS" painted on the wall. This is the route.


About 10 bolts protect this crack, meaning you don't need anything else really. However, you could also protect the route completely with a rack of friends and medium to large nuts.
