Aguja Poincenot - East face

2. Fühle Dich stark, aber nicht


400m 60˚A3+ 6c M5

Simon Gietl (Südtyrol) and Roger Schaeli (Switzerland), 6/12/2009.

Description. Climb half way up the Whillans ramp to the base of a steep blank face, above which looms a steep crack system that leads all the way to the summit (550m altogether). The blank face is the crux, a time-consuming 30-meter aid extravaganza.

History. Climbed in one continuous push over four days, after fixing ropes up the Whillans ramps. Por qué el nombre de la ruta? responde Schaeli: “El nombre se lo inventó Simón y a los dos nos encantó, creemos que es lo que funciona para tener éxito en las montañas: arriésgalo todo cuando tiene sentido, pero párate si quieres llegar a viejo. ¡Escucha tu intuición!”

Approach. Paso Superior and Glaciar Piedras Blancas Superior.

Descent. Via the same route.
