Friday morning we took the chairlift and went up to the start of the route.
The first pitch seemed quite scary and dangerous to us because of a short section on very loose rock and mud and so we decided to climb a new variant that starts about 15 meters to the left of the original line: first we followed a crack/flake and then we traversed to the right reaching the second rock piton of the original pitch. On the rest of the route the rock is way better. The climbing is physically and psychologically demanding and mostly very obbligatory (especially pitches nr. 5, 7+8) - challenging, certainly one of the best routes we climbed in the last years. The quality of the rock pitons is mostly very good, we even "tested" two of them :-). It was my eighth route on this face and after having climbed the route we also understood why they called it Wüstenblume (desert flower) - because of it's rare beauty!
The next day we got up a bit later and decided to climb an "easier" route on the Ciavazes and so we went to do "Parmigiano Reggiano" (260m, 7a, 9 pitches). Nice but not easy for the grade!
Via Franz (The 2nd and 10th pitch are VII-/ VII !)
