Cima Ovest – Zinnfiziert (VI+ 400m)
Probably the most beautiful route in the upper 5th degree on the Cima Grande.
This relatively new climbing route runs along a rock pillar on the east face of the Cima Grande. Due to its sunny exposure, you can find good climbing conditions already in the early season and in autumn. The route is secured in the classic style. This means that only normal pitons are used for belaying, which have to be supplemented by mobile belay devices in the individual pitches.
The route was first climbed by the South Tyrolean mountain guides Hannes Pfeifhofer and Diddi Niederbrunner exactly 150 years after the first ascent of the Cima Grande. Once again, the well-rehearsed rope team has succeeded in discovering and climbing a new, logical climbing line for the first time on one of the most famous mountains in the Alps.
