Czech Monzun, new rock climb up Gastlosen Grand Pfad by Jan Kareš and Lukáš Čermák

di

On Gran Pfad in Switzerland’s Gastlosen massif Jan Kareš and Lukáš Čermák have made the first ascent of Czech Monzun.

Jan Kareš, the climber from Prague known for his new routing activity in Sardinia, teamed up with Lukáš Čermák to add a new rout to the Dolomites. Due to poor weather the two Czech climbers opted for the Gastlosen massif in Switzerland where they found drier rock on Grand Pfad.

"Our choice fell on the Gastlosen massif, a beautiful mountain group in Switzerland famous for the tough multi-pitch outing Yeah Man" Kareš explained "the wall is impressive, not particularly high but very steep and the thing that attracted us most was that there was room for a line up the central section of the highest face, Grand Pfad. We started and immediately the first pitch turned out to be the hardest! A true 40m battle upstupendous limestone to gain the ledge, where we discovered not only a via ferrata, but also that we could have got there from above! Lucky we didn’t know before! The route continues past vertical or slightly overhanging rock, always past sharp pockets and runout bolts. These were placed about four meters apart, sometimes a little more. Czech Monzun ends after 5 pitches, where it going the classic route which can be followed to reach the summit."

5 pitches: P1: 7c+, P2: 7a+ PL3: 7b P4: 7a P5: 7a
Belays equipped with carabiners. Rake one 80m rope and 13 quickdraws
