Tuesdaying in Snownodia, Devil's Pasture

Better climbing than waiting in the restaurante! Nice day to call sick and enjoy early conditions. We left monday evening after I lost myself around Candem Town for a couple hours and pissed Simon, who I barely knew :) We head straight to Idwall and stayed behind Pete's Cafe. Early morning and lin ess than two hours we were starting this easy III to see how we would get along. Both survived and we than tackled the beautifull Devil's Pasture (IV, 3). When I grow up I wan to be like Simon :)
Simon evaluating the ice conditions. Seens safe :)

Sunny reward.

Switzerland, Mönch 4107m, Nollen Route (AD/AD+)

the boys and their the toys

Mönch (the Monk), the Nollen route runs on the right trought the rock ridge and them over the lump wich leads to the last ramp to the summit.

This year the Nollen was quite steep and almost overhaning at the lip. Sustained pich of hard blue ice.

Gift from the Nollen (plus a huge tooth ache) and game over. Home. Ouch.
