El Nino - Hochgasser

First ascent: Vittorio Messini, Matthias Wurzer 01/2016
By: Planetmountain
Area: Tauern Alps, Group: High Tauern, Peak: Hochgasser, Country: Austria, Region: East Tirol

A "mega mixed line" first ascended by Vittorio Messini and Matthias Wurzer on 2, 4 and 5 January 2016 and then climbed free on 7/01/2016.


El Nino located immediately to the left of the ultra classic icefall Rechter Nordportal Eisfall WI5-, 120m, close to the northern entrance of the Felbertauern tunnel on the flanks of Mt .Hochgasser.


Apart from pitch three, that leads straight through a tricky slab, all other pitches need protecting up beautiful gneiss cracks past superb hooks.
