Iceclimbing: Renkfaelle (ch)   Renkfälle 

Date: March 2003
Partner: Andi Fichtner, Christoph Leiter, Rene Niethammer
Conditions: Less ice than in the last years, many of the more difficult routes didn't build up
  • Eisspur
  • Eiskoenig
  • The 2 1/2 hour approach obviously scared away the crowds,
    there were only 2 parties on Sat and Sun on the falls.
  • The ice was very brittle, especially in the compact ice routes.  I saw 2 guys using 
    "Halbrohrhauen"  (U-shaped picks)  that worked very well in theses conditions !
