Mayerlrampe gets its name from legendary East Tirolean alpinist Sepp Blasl Mayerl who made the first ascent of this spectacular line together with H. Lindner and H. Messner in 1967. Since Blasl's first ascent - also known as Reinhold Messner's teacher, this fully north facing route hasn’t undergone any dramatic changes. Often in good condition, Mayerlrampe tends to be less exposed to falling rocks that Pallavicini since it remains in the shade throughout. The ice sections are slightly harder than Pallavicini and for many years this route acted as the final exam of the Austrian Mountain Guides. All of these factors render the Mayerlrampe a beautiful, five-star climb!
