The Rubihorn north face is one of the winter classics in the Allgäu Alps and is an ideal practice area to venture into larger winter activities. (M4, 45°, rock difficulties: max. III+/IV-)
There is now a wealth of different mixed routes on the Rubihorn north face. The classic Rubihorn north face is the easiest ascent through the face. The short ascent and the comfortable descent make it a perfect day's destination. Most of the time, you have hardly any ice contact and mostly move in rock, frozen grass and snow. The route can be divided into two areas. The lower part of the wall moves mainly in the rock and is divided into 5 pitches (two of them very easy). In the upper part of the wall, ascents are mainly made in snow or firn up to a maximum of 45°. A few rocky spots have to be overcome. The upper part of the wall is much lighter than the lower part. The route can be done very early in winter if there is snow. The protection is moderate to good. Most of the belays are provided with bolts. In the lower part of the rock there are some bolts and pitons, as well as sling material as intermediate securing. Nevertheless, you should also attach mobile securing devices yourself
