latest holiday round up

Day 1
Kiental - The Tuba pillar looked good from the front until ...... "you want to climb THAT?"

Day 2
Kiental - Elvis; I did not finish the top roof but then did do better with a flash of the RH start to Cabron.

This is a view of Kiental from the approach 'road'. The right hand line of continuous ice is In der wurze.... and the line to the left of that is Edel and Stark.
