Hruschka

First ascent: M. Hruschka, E. Lunz, R. Von Zieglauer 28/9/1933. Winter ascent: Marcello Cominetti, Francesco Salvaterra 13/3/2015
By: Francesco Salvaterra
Area: Dolomites, Group: Sella, Peak: Mur de Pisciadù, Country: Italy

This route was first climbed by the pharmacist from Brunico M. Hruschka, together with E. Lunz and R. von Zieglauer back on 28 September 1933. 500m high, it’s classic Dolomite chimney climbing breaches difficulties up to classic grade V. Reinterpreted in winter, in our opinion it is a really nice climb, by no means trivial, fun and adventurous. Seeing that the approach is easy and the ice often forms, Hruschka deserves to become a winter classic.

ACCESS

Park at Ristorante Mesules, the last house at Colfosco in Badia when driving up towards Passo Gardena, and cross the pistes. Enter Val Mezdì (AVS signs). Ascend the valley and reach the base of the obvious ramp that leads to the chimney. If using snowshoes, leave these at the base of the ramp. Circa 1 hour from the car.

GEAR

8 ice screws, 3-4 friends up to #1, 2 pegs, slings

Salita il 18 marzo 2015 con Alice, Federico e Stefano. Via varia, divertente e non banale. Grazie ai primi salitori per aver scoperto e poi condiviso questa linea! Materiale da roccia indispensabile per gli ultimi tiri.
