Kamasutra, Klausenpass

When our plans to check out the Wendenstöcke dwindled away, Cyrill immediately came up with an alternative. Something closer and shorter, but with good quality limestone and fun climbing. Sounded great, but when he mentioned Klausenpass, I was a bit skeptical, since last time I was there, the rock was loose and slabby. Being a local though, he knew the goods and we went to climb the Kamasutra, which takes the steepest wall of Chli Glatten.

The climbing was surprisingly fun, with six really steep pitches. Cyrill was climbing very fast while I had trouble reading the rock and taking forever even on the easier pitches. Fortunately, my minimum Jahresabo is paying the dividends and I could do all the pitches first go. We mainly swapped leads, but I got the chance to lead both money pitches, which got me quite pumped.

Nice rock on P2

Fun view across the street.

The wall-book was more interesting than usual.
Smooth abseiling.
