Zahnlos at Seekofel, new mixed climb in the Dolomites

by

At Seekofel / Croda del Becco above Lake Braies in the Dolomites alpinists Manuel Baumgartner and Daniel Töchterle from the South Tyrol, Italy, completed the first ascent of Zahnlos (200m, WI6/M6).

On 7 March at Seekofel, a mighty peak that dominates Lake Braies in the Dolomites, Manuel Baumgartner and Daniel Töchterle established a new mixed climb called Zahnlos, toothless.

The 200m outing is described as being a line that rarely comes into conditiod and provides a first pitch that is, according to Baumgartner, "very delicate due to the poor rock quality. Plus not much ice forms there." The second and third pitches provide moderate difficulties, while the fourth pitch ascends a 45° snow ramp that leads to the crux finale. "Thin ice, steep climbing. We used a peg here, and also one on the first pitch, and both were left in-situ."

The two South Tyroleans descended by abseil, off four Abalakov belays.
