Großer Falkenstein, new multi-pitch climb in Austria

07.11.2012 by Planetmountain

Vittorio Messini and Isidor Poppeller have made the first ascent of Die Ritter der Kokosnuss up Großer Falkenstein, Austria.

A new route has been added to the beautiful south face of Großer Falkenstein close to Matrei in East Tirol thanks to Vittorio Messini and Isidor Poppeller who added Die Ritter der Kokosnuss. Established this autumn ground-up and freed on 14 October, the route presents difficulties up to 7b+ and joins the other 6 multi pitches on the 120m high face.
