Solo climb of the Watzmann Ostwand, via the Berchtesgatner Weg, Berchtesgaten, in the Bavarian Alps. This climb has 1800 meter of vertical elevation from the bottom of the face to the summit (summit is 2713m), UIAA grade I and II for the most part with a couple of sections of III+. This essentially translates into a 3000m grade 3 scramble with a few bits of Diff/VDiff. I intended to climb the face in the day and descend in the night.
