Nemjung South Face AscentFirst ascent by Yannick Graziani and Christian Trommsdorff
Oct. 11-16, 2009
"A route of around 2300m, 45 pitches (+ some simul climbing, maybe 25% of the route), ED+, mostly ice/mixed and snow, a few pitches with just rock. Many very delicate snow ridges/walls/flutes to climb or traverse, fantastic gullies and mixed climbing, many vertical sections; a very committing route, complicated abseils during the descent and also we had to climb from a gully back onto the base of the first tower (which we avoided by a 60m abseil on the way up).
