Wasserläufer multi-pitch climb in South Tyrol by Daniel Ladurner, Florian Riegler, Martin Riegler

di

Florian Riegler, Martin Riegler and Daniel Ladurner have established the new multipitch rock climb Wasserläufer next to Margarethenbach close to Terlan in the Etschtal valley, South Tyrol, Italy. Ladurner reports.

After Daniel had already inspected the approach and the wall for possible lines with Christian Auer in summer 2017, and after Martin Riegler took a closer look at the wall last spring, in summer Florian Riegler, Martin Riegler and I started to establish the new route next to the Margarethenbach waterfall.

It took a lot of time, effort and hard work to complete the first ascent, placing the bolts ground-up and carefully cleaning the pitches. In the end though we created a pleasant route in a great ambient; you often climb just a stone’s throw from the waterfall, which shouldn’t be underestimated.

We look forward to repeats, as these will clean the rock a bit more. The crux pitch can be protected better with medium-sized Friends or even aided.

The approach is relatively short. The route is located in the heart of the Adige Valley and is one of the few routes in the area that can be climbed almost all year round.
