Innerkofler "North Wind"

At Innerkofler Tower in the Sassolungo Group. On the South Face you can see on the left side a short pillar (a southwest pillar) that ends on the “ Normal Route ” of the Innerkofler Tower .

First ascent: on August 1 st 1996 with Silke Perathoner.
There are a few cracks. The quality of the rock is moderate.
Difference in height of the route: about 180 m
Rope pitches: 6
Grade of difficulty: up to the upper 6 th

During our second ascent we climbed the direct exit crack with considerable difficulties of the 7 th degree with artificial passages. At our first ascent we wanted to climb the Moroder Route at the “Zahnkofel” but it was very cold and a strong wind was blowing. That’s also the reason why we named this route “North Wind”. We didn’t want to freeze and so we chose this South Face that is situated behind the Zahnkofel Gap. Also the cracks looked very attractive.

Descent: through the “ Normal Route ” to the Zahnkofel Gap.
