Hoher Riffler

Crux time. Riffler's summit blocks and the notch that makes the difference between P 7 and P 1341. On the left is the lower, easy-to-reach south peak (3166m), on the right the higher north peak, marked by a summit cross (3168m). Getting there requires climbing skills (UIAA grade II+ or III-, depending on who you ask) and a good head for heights; the exposure above the north face in particular is substantial. Approximately 90% of all Riffler visitors content themselves with the P 7 dwarf (2018-08-29). Photo by Habakuk Tibatong.
