Descent from Gross Schijen South Ridge Gross Schijen (UR) 2786 m
- 20 m
- 1–1:30 h, 210 m
Descent route. Part of the normal ascent to Gross Schijen.
Descent on foot: Climb over the ridge a bit further (ca. 2 pitches, grade 2 to 3c, hardly any bolts) till you reach a grassy saddle. From here, tracks lead on to the summit, as well as back down to start of the route. Down leads through the grassy SW flank to a distinct gully. Follow this down (a few scrambling/down climbing sections, abseil possible) to reach the base of the crag. This descent requires appropriate footwear and some practice in such terrain.
