Lots of fun, especially the exit from the cave (3rd pitch)...

Descent Options:

Walk off. There is a rather dicey "emergency exit" after the 6th pitch.

2 out of 5 stars Not spectacular.

+ Exit from the cave in the third pitch.
+ Nice overhang in one of the following pitches.
+ Name of the route is "Caveway" - most belay station are in little caves.
- Not my favorite route.
- Loose rock.
- Goes right underneath the neighbor route "Namenlose Kante" in the second half - falling rocks.

Original rating: 6a+ on the French scale.
Guide: Schweiz Plaisir Ost, Filidor. ISBN 10: 3906087158. ISBN 13: 9783906087283.
Rope: Single 50m.
Bring stoppers and friends.
After about 2/3 you can cross into the easier route "Namenlose Kante", also there is an emergency ascent from that route.
From the exit you can walk up to the summit after the climb.
There is a little hut (about 47°05'58.07 N, 8°57'01.12 E) where you can leave stuff, with catering on weekends.
You can take the bus to Innerthal, from there it's about 1 hour to the hut.
You can fill up your water bottles on your way to the hut.

Ascent style: Mixture of lead, second and some cheating in the end.
