Handschig

Handschuhspitze north chute, direct:

D, 5.1, E3 / 42°-53°
2x 3om rappel (1x mandatory, bolted)

The week before we talked about skiing something off Handschuhspitze, a summit located in the most western part of the Mieming mountain range aka Mieminger Kette, would be a welcome change to the almost weekly pilgrimage to Ehrwald/Tyrol ;). I went skiing in the Stubai Alps the day before, had been quite busy during the week and wasn’t involved in the detailed planning activities. There are a couple of nice north facing lines and I was okay with skiing any of them. To be honest, I thought about one of the smaller chutes since we haven’t skied anything really steep in the season so far. Turned out we picked one of the hardest descends which became a little adventure as well …
