By: Albert Leichtfried, Mountain Guide
Area: Central Alps, Group: Pitztal, Peak: Pitztal, Height: 1600m, Country: Austria, Region: Tyrol

Monsterline is a long and demanding icefall. After a 'warm-up' on the first two pitches the monster awaits on the upper section with continues vertical climbing.The route owes its name to this upper section: the gigantic ice formation, almost always vertical, really does look like a monster on closer inspection. Those who want to beat this beast have to prepare for battle!
