Maltese Cross

Postby Hann » Thu Apr 26, 2007 8:11 am

A couple of us will be braving the rain at the Wolfberg this weekend.
I have ample RDs for the cracks but would like some info on the Maltese Cross.

Does anybody have a RD for it or does anybody know which MCSA Journal to check?

I climbed the cross years ago! The easiest way up is shown in the pic below, the grade was probably about 16/17.
You only need one rope (to get up and down). Naturally there are harder routes.

One other thing... I don't know what the Niewehouts feelings are about climbing on the Cross - so maybe don't mention it to them :)

Was looking on the web and somebody dragged an ironing board up there! This pic shows the other side of the cross.
