The South Ridge Of The Purtscheller From Trient Side

The route starts in the large tight V notch centre left of the photo. A loose rocky gully leads up and out left on to a wall of beatiful cracked granite and the fine first pitch. After that a series of traverses on the Trient flank give a great variety of pitches leading all the way to the fine summit.
